Wrestler Chris Benoit-Hero or Zero?

Hero or Zero

Note-One of the hardest things I have ever had to write cos for a long time I really looked up to this man. Now if what they are saying is true.....

How will this once great man be remembered?
Now that we know the awful truth
Can we ever truely be able to forgive him?
Should we even want to try?
If he had just a normal man and not a superstar on our tv screens seen weekly
Would we even be asking or would a harsh judgement from us have already been passed down?
Tell me
Hero or zero?
How will you remember this man?
The late Chris Benoit

Driven to acts beyond our understanding
Something must have broken inside of him
Far too late for anyone to see
Could innocent souls have been saved?
Could this tragic event have been prevented?
Sadly I fear that we will never know
The depths of his private pains
Too deep and deadly to take
Now how shall this man be remembered?
Hero or zero?
Tell me
How do you forgive the unforgivable?

So quiet
No harm from his gentle soul would any of his fans or friends ever expected
Grasping for answers
He left us all too soon
With an endless list of heartbreaking questions
Was he a monster secretly all along or just another tortured soul?
Who are we to say?
Who are we to wonder?
Hero or zero?
How will he be remembered now?
I'm not sure I really want to know

Do you....?

its hard to say, because he did what he did, then wwe practically treated him as if he didn't exist, so unexpected and unknown, an amazing wrestler, one of the best, but as a human being, who knows what to say, cause i'm sure no one really knows the true story,
brilliant poem
