#17 Lin-Manuel Miranda

Lin-Manuel Miranda

Wrote music, and then a play about a hero

Who never saw himself as a hero

But wrote "like he's running out of time."

I wonder if that's how he writes too. 

Two too many syllables synchronizing sonic synthesizers seamlessly.

Insiders long to meet him but wouldn't have

ten years ago.  Especially

on the street.

I wonder if he knows his history is being written 

as he tells others' stories.

I wonder how his family feels.  If he is a hero to them

Or too busy running out of time to notice

That time runs out.
