true heroes by Linda M. Crate

passes as an amazing achievement
it seems
anyone finds any reason to celebrate,
life is short;
but why should we salute the mundane
on the back and ignore the
real achievements
the ones that have been worked for 
for years and months and weeks?
too afraid to offend anyone
we offend everyone
because when you stand for nothing
do you really deserve to
i tire of all the gophers being praised
for things they always should have
let us salute the true heroes who fight for their
dreams and achieve them.
