Watching Heroes Fall
No one wants to watch the hero fall, to lose his grace, to lose his faith. No one wants to see the pain or bear witness to his failure as a light falters, flickers and fades. No one wants to watch the darkness encroach and slowly swallow all sense of hope. They only want the pillar, the mountain, the rock, the guiding beacon in the night, the fire that keeps the dark at bay. But for the hero the fall is part of the journey, part of what makes him rise above what others only dream; it is the fire in which he is forged, the sacred duty which he must perform… …alone.
This is tremendous! Love it!
Thanks. Just a glimpse into the mind of someone being viewed as a champion or hero… I know you know the feeling. 😉
