Heroine (Poetry)

“Heroine” was originally written as song lyrics, so if it doesn’t really read as a poem, that would be why. I’ve had this posted elsewhere before and I recall people liking it. 

Feeling myself getting higher

Every thought of you

Rekindles an inner fire

In a world full of sin

Heroine, you’re a bright

Shining beacon of love

For a world hanging on a wire

Heroine, standing tall

The days aren’t always

Bright but you always are

Even when you don’t know it

You live life as only

You can and make best of it

Get high on it, don’t let it

Bring you down

Overworked, tired, unknown

If you can take tomorrow

I’ve been all these things

Bogged down by the sorrow

Of memories, past wasted days

Your smile’s a hopeful example

For all of us to follow

Heroine, standing tall

The days aren’t always

Bright but you always are

Even when you don’t know it

You live life as only

You can and make best of it

Get high on it don’t let it

Bring you down

It’s brought me down

Trying to pick me back up

My heroine

Just a thought of you

Picks me back up

Heroine, standing tall

The days aren’t always

Bright but you always are

Even when you don’t know it

You live life as only

You can and make best of it

Get high on it don’t let it

Bring you down
