“Heroes”, spoken word

there are heroes
whose voices we dont hear
we dont listen
we keep ourselves too busy
telling the same stories
over and over again
of war and defeat
of lies and deceit
they’re safer
for our eyes to see
than the ones that silently
scream out to be
they scream every word
but we dont hear
we just watch
these tragedies
unravel like films on screans
and call them liars
inflamers of long dead fires
when does it end
when do we get too bored or
too tired to defend
our own egos
our manipulations of ethos
how many more times will we wait
to take a stand
until its too late
