And they tell you
Out of tragedy, legends are born
But none seem to mention the struggle
While weaving the heroic tale.
They only talk ballads,
Of monsters slain, and battles won,
But none remember the sacrifices,
They only assume a hero has it all.

So true. Nobody ever thinks about the difficulty a hero had becoming a hero, they just only think about the rewards that come after. Excellent poem! :D

so if i can't use this poem on my book. can you help me create one simililar to this one?
Reply
:iconsolidmars:
SolidMars Featured By Owner May 15, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
the answer is still a no. i am not a freelancer, i don't have time to waste on some book, and also this is literally a 5 lines poem, if you can't write a 5 lines poem on your own, maybe you should try and become a better writer before even attempting to write a book.

Ahhhh! Literature!!!♥♥
Not a story, but still.
I like it though, people hardly ever think about what heros have to go through and what they have to sacrifice to acheive their end goal. ;-;

no one does, they assume that if you have glory and success you had  it easy, you didn't suffer nor go through a ton of shit.

prose..well, i honesty have old drafts and stories from 3-4 years that are ready and done, i can upload those to stash and link you if you want

It's because Heroes have to embrace their destiny which is, by definition, tragedy, so the legend can be born.

Lovely little piece.

Generally speaking, that is exactly how it went - poor people, ugly people, criminals, people who defaulted on their debts.  I suppose it was an excuse to get rid of undesirables.
