Super Hero

As a child I dreamed of what super hero I would be

Should I wear a mask? Or show my face for all to see?

Would I be big and strong? Or maybe small but fast!

Maybe I could fly high or shoot an atomic blast!


How about Spiderman swinging high and fast?

Smashing round as Hulk a hero built to last

Or a team player one of the X-men I could be

Perhaps I would be moody then Batman is for me


Then came my own nemesis twice as strong as me

This enemy was evil and we called it “Reality”

It came without warning its reach far and wide

Only people with lots of money could truly hide


Its power was too great and I was left amazed

Those lost to “Reality” seemed forever dazed

But a hero is good and a hero must be strong

So as myself with no powers I choose to carry on


The battle was hard and tough and still it goes on

I don’t think I can fight no more I know I am not strong

Fighting with “Reality” barely surviving each scrape

I’ve decided now is the time to be hanging up my cape


Today I no longer want the powers I once craved...

Because I met a girl I don’t think I have saved

Author's Notes:

What does a Super Hero do when there appears to be no right or wrong answer and a fight can't be settled with Super Powers? Sometimes you just have to trust in the person under the mask and hope it is enough.

Well Done!

I agree with Chelle, You have overcome a lot in life & being the person you are today is something you should be proud of. You're one of the strongest people I know.. never really had superpowers, and you clearly don't need them.. I just know really you just want the excuse to wear wonderwman's costume.

Nate: you KNOW that heroes are more than "super powers". This is a great write and yes, Reality can be a real bummer.
