Hero

Published by Jackie Chou on

the ugly writers

believe me

believe in you

that you are something

not nothing

or anything

a whiff of wind

a tiny rock

thrown upon a pond

the impact of which

is momentary

insignificant

but something

important

that gives life

improves life

like sun

water

oxygen

only more beautiful

more fragrant

coloring the world

with iridescent hues

exuding sweet scents

like a potpourri

I am here

to be your guiding light

to help you see

that you are all those things

and more

to me

to the world—

believe me

I’ve got your back!

This poem was stunning and magnificent for me. Short but brilliantly composed.

Short yet amazingly composed. Exactly the type of poem I would read before the midterm exams. Thanks

I like how the words are used in this poem and I like the message of this poem that anyone can be a true hero. It is short but sweet.
