Dead Poets

pardon me
I do not mean to judge
the greats
of the greats
but should they be heroes
forever in literary eternity
those who picked a vice
and perfected it until the end
choosing to stay there
and pen it down
with the only evolution
within that vice
and not evolution
into a different
state of being
or reality
while we are in their place
they are our heroes
but their glory fades
for those
who move out of it
however slowly
and we look for some other form
of nourishment
for where it is
we find ourselves now.
