Heroes

we thought we were heroes
once
but that was
a very long time ago
now
we’re nothing
nothing but haunted ghosts
held together
by blood and scars
and damaged souls
history will
name us heroes still
because
the past is written in blood
spilled by wolves
the truth is
we were
what was needed
we were the blood and the rage and the hate and the lies and the deceit and all the things
no one wants to know about
not after a war
not ever
no we
were never heroes
