Fractured Gems

Pedestals again

Thrust themselves to the forefront.

Must one be flawless

To warrant veneration,

Or is human good enough?

~

When humanity 

Struggles to be their best selves

Despite many flaws,

This is the heroism

That warrants veneration.

~

If our heroes must

Be alabaster figures,

They will not be found

Lest we manufacture them

And plaster them with whitewash.
