  1. Hero<o:p></o:p>
    By Kathrine Goodall

    My hero is gone<o:p></o:p>
    Not physically, but mentally.<o:p></o:p>
    He’s given up fighting<o:p></o:p>
    To keep the life so many cherish.<o:p></o:p>
    He sits in his chair alone,<o:p></o:p>
    Staring at the blank screen,<o:p></o:p>
    The box turned off,<o:p></o:p>
    Reminding him that soon he will be.<o:p></o:p>
    He has changed.<o:p></o:p>
    Changed from a father with no worries,<o:p></o:p>
    To a shell of a man he once was.<o:p></o:p>
    Nothing left,<o:p></o:p>
    All hope has been stolen unknowingly.<o:p></o:p>
    His heart isn’t far behind.<o:p></o:p>
    Many have tried to help him come back<o:p></o:p>
    But none have succeeded.<o:p></o:p>
    I wish he wasn’t like this.<o:p></o:p>
    I want my daddy, like any other little girl.<o:p></o:p>
    But he’s slipping through my trembling<o:p></o:p>
    If only I could save him.<o:p></o:p>
    Make him not so gone.<o:p></o:p>
    If only he was okay again,<o:p></o:p>
    Like the Super-dad he once was.<o:p></o:p>
    If only.<o:p></o:p>
    But he’s not,<o:p></o:p>
    And he won’t be.<o:p></o:p>
    I can’t fix the broken man<o:p></o:p>
    I call Daddy.
