A Hero In The Ordinary World - Poem by Brittany Graviet

A hero in the ordinary world,
Washes dishes in the sink
Adventure softly whispers
'The world dies without thee'

The dishes clatter
Chipping and cracking.
Paralyzed the hero stands.
This voice, all too familiar,
Echo's his deep yearning.

'Save the world, and be a change.
You watch the world like TV.
Not liking the show,
But too lazy to reach for the remote.'

Shaken, he falls to his knees
No confidence to fuel him.
Who is he to touch lives,
And improve the world?

Adventure screams,
'Rise to thy feet ye vagabond,
flourish your glory,
before i pass thee by again.'

    Wow, I read this and my mouth literally dropped. I love this poem and gave it a 10. If there was an number high it certainly would have deserved it. In, poems there's always one main thing that stands out to me and in this poem I loved the lines:

    'Save the world, and be a change.
    You watch the world like TV.
    Not liking the show,
    But too lazy to reach for the remote.'

    Reminds me of how people want to see a change, but are too lazy to do anything about it. Absolutely wonderful Brittany!
