Hollow - Poem by Gary Scott Gebert

Some assume he is strong
a beast with cunning and alacrity
He is looked to for guidance
a pillar, which can hold the burden

When in uncertainty he has the reply
all need to feel his assurance
In time of danger a barricade
they congregate to be beneath his shadow

Like an eagle soaring
above them all he seems to be
His eyes stabbing their heart
a critic self appointed with their consent

Into the dark they pursue
hands extended feeling for security
Until the dawn they wait
for him to guide them upon the path

But if you look deep into his reflection
stare into his resolute gaze
You will find him hollow
Just like you and I
