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.

Perhaps some think only of the good things, choosing to forget the bad?

True, but it's easy to deliberately not mention something

might be, but sometimes as soon as a sad idea or even cross your mind the same whirlwind of feels begins

indeed. they just assume they got there nice and easy without any complications. but when you tell them those great people suffered more than a normal person should they don't buy it

heroes are normal everyday life. dc/marvel are just comics, but there are heroes in real life that can make a difference

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.
