Really High Hopes
by Radko Vacek
Age Group: Adult
Fairy tales might cause the worst grief of all:
Expecting events to end happily
And those who play heroes never to fall
Nor fail, if they seem right out of Faerie.
How it hurts to be a would-be hero,
To have others counting on you, their god,
Only for them to find you not quite so,
A dead flame behind this fiery facade!
Yet, though truly Heracles I am not,
Still, I deem things better for having tried.
Even this demigod met a dour lot,
But his greatness never can be denied.
Let us wish upon them, and reach for stars,
Regardless of how far we truly are!
Author's Location: Toledo, Ohio
