Fallen Heroes

Where have my heroes gone? My role models of yesterday.

The athletes are addicted to pain killers. They have drowned their livers in alcohol and have lost themselves to the expectations placed upon them.

The beauty queens are filled with botox and have chosen a frozen appearance over wrinkles. The quiet ones have become leaders and the spirited have been reduced to tears. The comedians are no longer funny and their humor has become sarcasm.

The writers have become critics; they judge the rest of us to make a dollar. The musicians and artists have pushed their creativity aside because they can no longer pay the bills. The scientists and engineers have become the leaders. The cheerleaders have lost their voices and their movements are now stiff.

The rest of us; stay the course as best we can.
