Truth Behind Legend

Truth Behind Legend

A Poem by Forever Mine

There is some truth behind every legend.... Right?


There is truth behind every legend

         There is hope behind strength

Every hero relies on something


For Hercules it was his strength

         For King Arthur it was his Knowledge

For Robin Hood it was his inuition and cunning


Where did these legends come from?

        There has to be some truth



Maybe there was a guy who was strong and brave

         Maybe there was an ancient king whose name got intwined in myth

Maybe there really was somebody who stole from the rich


There is truth behind every legend

           There is hope behind strength

Every Hero relies on something


So why can't we?

Now you'd made me wonder even more whether those guys exist or not...
I don't even believe in their existence at all...
Thanks to this poem, I started to wonder...

NIce point eloquently stated, and well taken. I liked this, the repeating stanzas added heft. Nice work.

I liked this perspective. I find your choice of legends interesting and I liked how you chose the "strong and brave" Nicely done

Behind every legend is a faith in the power of humanity and that is what I believe keeps these legends going whether true or not... a very intelligent and creative piece.
