I Want to Be a Hero

I wish that I had the courage
Of the great Captain America
I wish that I had the strength 
Of the mighty demigod Thor

I wish that I had the agility
Of the amazing Spider-Man
I wish that I had the ingenuity
Of the unstoppable Iron Man

I wish that I had the power to control the weather
Like the X-Men member Storm could do
I wish that I could go invisible
Like the Fantastic Four’s Sue Storm could do

I grew up reading both Marvel and DC Comics
This brave and unique group of men and women
Were people that I not only idolized
But people that I wish I could be like

I wish that I could fly
Like the great Superman
I wish that I could fight
Just like the mysterious Batman does

When it comes down to it:
I want to be a hero
Just like those men and women are
Like Green Lantern or Wolverine
