He Was Both the Dope and the Hero

Doping confessing by Lance Armstrong Why tell the truth, when a lie can set you free The sympathy card, the court jester: with slumbering tears The windows wipers wipe the milky tears from his eyes. He compete, and achieves victory through deceit Does a hero cheat, his way to victory? A hero was never label a bully throughout history Spiderman, superman , Robin Hood heroes never confessed their sins The incredible hulk did a powerful transformation Restoring international credibility in prime time; Time after time A myth is a myth even in the past, present and future.

Dear Anie, People judge other people by their actions WHEN they should Judge them by the intentions of their actions. So the question remains: If a liar confesses that he is a liar does he lie or does he tell the truth? That is the enigma? Beautifully written regardless what he is. A great work! Thank you!

I can only imagine how hard fought those wins were drugs or no drugs I for one could never have accomplished them. We need to stop making hero's out of sportsmen. Light & Love
