Hero

Standard

You are not a hero

If you are

The one who put me in danger.

You’re not my salvation

If you are the reason

I am damned.

 

Mercy from a tyrant

Is not benevolence

And abstinence

From one with a dead heart

Is not a virtue.

 

You say you love me

When you harm me

But saying something

Doesn’t make it true.

 

Make no mistake,

Less cruelty

Is no kindness.
