Heroes are just humans,
full of flaws and faults
like the rest of us
They may think that
the flaws are hidden when capes and masks are donned,
that faults fly away when they do,
but instead they just fester and grow
into something without edges
In trying to save the world,
they forget to save themselves.
They turn more human than hero.
And that is what draws us to them.
You can give us super-humans
and although their powers dazzle us,
we are allured to the human in their names.
