Superzero

I’m not the boy I was

When I was born

No one knew

What was hiding within

I was always part of it

And now it’s part of me

Still hidden, but no longer hiding

Is the secret I hold within

 

I’m reminded I’m a zero

That I must be

That I should want to be

That I must become

A hero

But how can I be a hero outside

When I still feel zero inside?

My superpower isn’t the power

To make a zero feel like a hero inside

 

You say I must

That it’s just

But it’s a bust

So, what if I just

Believe in me?

 

If I had claws I’d fear they could

Accidentally slice you

If I had eyes that could burn

I’d have to spurn you

For fear of what my loving gaze

Could do to you.

But thankfully, I can’t do those things

Regretfully however, I can do worse

And you’ll never understand

What that means to me

No it’s not what it’s cracked up to be

 

Some say I must

that it’s just

but it’s a bust

So, what if I just

Wanna do my own thing?

 

Neither good nor bad

Is this power growing

But for now this power is unused

And that is the question

To use or not use

This power within?

Which is the greater sin?

 

And it seems that

Everyone says I must

That it’s just

But it’s a bust

So, what if I just

Ignore everyone but me?

 

I’ve learned you have to endure

Hoping to become strong enough

To survive

And if you can survive

Long enough

Then maybe one day thrive

And only then

Maybe

Become a hero

From the zero

 

You say I must

That it’s just

But it’s a bust

So, what if I just

Believe in me?
