Tupac Shakur


When Ure Hero Falls


when your hero falls from grace
all fairy tales r uncovered
myths exposed and pain magnified
the greatest pain discovered
u taught me 2 be strong
but im confused 2 c u so weak
u said never 2 give up
and it hurts 2 c u welcome defeat
when ure hero falls so do the stars
and so does the perception of tomorrow
without my hero there is only
me alone 2 deal with my sorrow
your heart ceases 2 work
and your soul is not happy at all
what r u expected 2 do
when ure only hero falls

    I know what it's like...My hero has fallen and she is not getting up anytime soon. I hope she makes it, makes it to the promise land and one day i pray to god that I'm up there one day to see her. (In loving mem. Shelby Grey)

    Tupac was one of the best poets to ever put 'pen to paper. Unfortunately, not a lot
    of people knew this or recognized this until years later. As much as I liked his music I never knew he was this good of an poet as well.Wow! ! (Report) Reply

    tupac lived fast and died young, his lyrics and poems show a tortured soul who was convinced he would be killed young, yet he had a great understanding of society which resonates through his words of wisdom, this is one of his better poems which is true to anyone who has lost some one they love and shows tupacs softer side. tupac rest in peace (Report) Reply

    Certainly nothing human or mundane endure for ever, more so mortal heroes, of course except the divinely inspired ones.The inevitable fall of a 'hero' at once reveals human fallibility, transience, and pliability to our inherent weaknesses against forces beyond human manipulation.Tupac, yours is indubitably a deep and profound thought.We miss you. Rest in the Beneficence of your Lord, Allah, brother. (Report) Reply

    This is so sad but true. I know what he means; I lost my grandpa in 2005 and this was exactly how I felt at the time.
