The modern hero


So here you stand,
the guardian of banality.

you never sweat to the burning sun,
you radiate under the mournful sky,
you hold on to life in the wild wind,
you drop your tears for a shooting star.


you are the gladiator in obscent nudity,
you are the philosopher in silent resistance,
you are the prince in abandoned territory,
you are the Odessey in eternal captivity.
The Modern Hero (2006)

Alas, this is the age of no hero!

you and you alone,
fighting against today and today...
the never ending repetition
of today and today...
