“EVERY SUPERHERO’S UTOPIAN DREAM”

Perhaps you’re one of the little kids

dreaming of becoming superheroes

saving the world

wherever they go

 

Wouldn’t that be wonderful?

You could be popular

Life might be less cruel

Everyone would feel safer

 

You’d protect them from harm

Put the enemies in disarm

Still, forces of evil are there

ready for another scare

 

As time goes by

you begin to realise

it’s been a mere comfort

just to deal with the hurt

 

Once upon a time

perhaps you were one of them

gullible kids wanting to be the heroes

some glorious honour you’d love the most

 

However,

reality’s turned you bitter

It’s forced you to wake up

and deal with a lot

 

Being a superhero has always been

nothing but a childish, utopian dream

because it’s just not good enough

if you can’t save everyone you love…
