Poetry by Luke W.

 

Heroes need Heroes

Luke wrote this poem after the tragic deaths of Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell and Linkin Park singer Chester Bennington. As a fan of both bands growing up, he remembers seeing  many people call these two their “heroes” and  wanted to write something to remind everyone that even our heroes need someone to look up to sometimes.

You are the one I will forever turn to

You have always helped me through and through

Now I see that you are the one who has fallen

Let me help you before you hit rock bottom

You have always been strong, been my boulder

Now it is time for you to lean upon my shoulder

I know you think it’s your job to save the day

But now I must stop you from being in disarray

 

You were there when I needed you most

Now it is my turn to bring you some hope

You have always been the shoulder for me to lean

Be emotional, you are human, not a machine

Throughout this time, you have been my hero

Let me stop you from going to the gallows

 

You’ve been strong for me for far too long

Now, for you, I shall be the one to be strong

Let me help you take away all of this hurt

It’s now my turn to show you your true worth

You were always there when I fell to pieces

Now I need to be the one within your reaches

I know you think it’s your job to save the day

Now it is my turn to stop you from your disarray

 

You were there when I needed you most

Now it is my turn to bring you some hope

You have always been the shoulder for me to lean

Be emotional, you are human, not a machine

Throughout this time, you have been my hero

Let me stop you from going to the gallows

 

When I needed you, you were always there with ease

Now I’m here as you’ve fallen to your knees

So now it’s my turn to help you up, help you rise

Now it’s my turn to remove the pain from your eyes

When I was down I always had a hero in you

Now I can say I get to be the hero for you too

 

You were there when I needed you most

Now it is my turn to bring you some hope

You have always been the shoulder for me to lean

Be emotional, you are human, not a machine

Throughout this time, you have been my hero

Let me stop you from going to the gallows

 

For all of those times you were my hero

It’s my turn to be the hero for you
