a poem - Hero

*
I was born to be a God,
to equal my creator in his goodness and anger.

It was written I would be praised,
that I could play with the fate of the man
but
I was cursed to be their savior.

**
I am not a God,
just a human hero,
murdered by them and honored later by the same.
I am
an old statue of stone,
forgotten and broken.

Father,  forgive their ignorance.
