  all the heroes are broken 
dedicated to my sister, nightwitch




there is none to receive the message ...

no-one hears

or wants to hear


heroes have incarnated many times,

repeatedly quick through myriad earth walks,

each existence continuing the consistent, 

torturous broken heartedness


(flesh is a harsh taskmaster, especially for heroes)


the time seen as coming is here – 

when mere arrival into flesh 

triggers aeons of emotional paradoxes 

which now manifest as mental illnesses


it’s a sign of the times




cracked cement
cracked cement

 

pray tell, what’s that you say?

you see no heroes?


look to asperger’s and narcissism and bi-polar –

look to OCD, autism , ADHD


these are the broken heroes, incarnating

with no thought to their own suffering

(for suffering even is tallied against ignorance) -

these, the broken heroes,

are driven by the prime directive ‘to assist,’

and selflessly return to flesh again and again -

today only a single vestige of their power, 

compassion, 

remains and alights their eyes, which,

despite transmutation’s inherent affliction, 

betrays the heroes paralyzed inside ...


i tell you,

all the heroes are broken –
