“Heroes and Villains” Poem of the Day (2022)

Heroes and Villains

By Ashley O’Hare

Heroes and villains—

It is a nice concept;

except it is not true.

One cannot definitively say

grey is black or white. 

Fights can only start with two sides. 

Pride is not always an evil trait.

Ballistics confirm that violence solves nothing. 

Something as complex as human identity,

mentality, and rationality requires care and time.

Crimes have several layers to feel back. 

Lack of subjective thought is necessary—

Clarity does not come readily.
