The Super Hero Dream.

Since I was young I've always had this reoccurring dream.

As immature and juvenile at it may seem.

I'd have this one fantasy…

That me and my peers were apart of a heroic, super natural team.

We would serve and protect the world from impending doom.

But every morning I always end up waking up too soon.

I would stir and gaze around my marvel inspired room.

And attempt to…

Move objects with just will of my mind.

Completely alter my anatomical design.

Teleport in and out of realties and dimensions.

Communicate with anyone via a telepathic connection.

Have an invulnerable metal emerge from my knuckles.

Tip the balance between the ageless good and evil struggle.

Soar above and around the skies like an aeroplane.

Have a romantic but dramatic relationship with my very own Mary Jane.

Have the technological advanced capabilities of a billionaire.

This would then enable me to have a untraceable, under water lair.

Catapult spheres of synthetic web from the palms of my hand.

Have my own theme tune played by a devoted jazz and hip hop band.

Defeat every arch nemeses that threatens the worlds existence.

Have an assembly of heroes and heroines for morale and physical assistance.

Create a logo and stitch it on to my colourful and daring attire.

Then crazed children will embrace my action figurine and admire.

I would help the helpless and give hope to the hopeless.

Having this responsibility would make my life less worthless.

But then I'd think what if this dream came true.

Does that the mean critics and stress will arise too?

Will I be a victim of the media and negative publicity.

Will I have to live a life of duplicity with no presence of simplicity.

I guess that's what makes a fantasy, fanciful.

It keeps the imaginable, unimaginable.

Because a dream in reality isn't actually tangible.

Without some sort of slander, slaughter and scandal.

Been working on this for a while I don't know why it just doesn't sound right to me. But this is topic I can relate to a great deal and I tried to express it the best way I can :) I hope you guys like it and that the rhyme isn't too heavy :) let me know what you think or if you've had the same dream. Or am I just a sad pathetic loser lol

Oh wow, I love this. We all dream of being superheroes but we don't really sit down and think about all of the stuff that comes along with being one. I mean we know about it but we don't sit and consider it. I like how you included that.

This was interesting; I like the last two lines. I think it really portrays that you can't get something that good without a high price for it. Well done.

Unfortunately... this poem speaks too much truth about this world and how we operate as part of it. Who wouldn't want to become a superhero and do things beyond our wildest dreams, to fly with the grace of an eagle or lift immense weights with minimal struggle? To shoot laser beams out of our eyes? Or maybe... breathe underwater and talk to fish a la Aquaman? =p

The sad reality is, the very minute something goes wrong or you just couldn't save that one person that, as it turned out, never could be saved in the first place, every single person turns their back on you, feeling that you are beneath them because you screwed up... just once, mind you.

To borrow words from an Eminem song, "...But then these critics crucify you, journalists try to burn you, fans turn on you, attorneys all want a turn at you..." Eventually, that one mistake leads to everyone condemning you, even though you tried desperately to help society while they didn't give a shit, one way or the other.

Seriously makes you feel more sympathetic towards Mr. Incredible and the rest of the superheroes who were forced to assume permanent secret identities, after just one mistake they accidentally made because of their powers. Had to throw in a reference to "The Incredibles". :thumbsup::)

Excuse me for my long-winded rant, just that this poem really made me think about things. Human beings, for everything we have accomplished, can truly be pathetic sometimes, and especially if something like this were to ever happen. I just hope one day we can embrace each other and ourselves regardless of our history, for that I believe is the path to our salvation.

Well done on such a brilliant poem, consider it favorited! :clap:

This is a fun poem, and it's definitely relatable, even though my specific fantasies have never involved being a superhero. It flows nicely and has rhythm, which kept me interested throughout the poem (which, alas, is not always the case with me. I am not a poetry person).
I like how you have the twist at the end, but I think you focus too much on "negative publicity"; I don't think bad press is one of the inherent problems with being a superhero. I think the inherent problem is that you wouldn't actually want to be in such situations. Very few people would truly want to be in constant danger, and to have the responsibility keeping the universe/planet/country/city safe. I think that's the case with most fantasies; it isn't really something you would want to happen to you.
That is what makes fantasies so enjoyable, I think, and you do address this a bit in the last stanza.

I thought this was a sweet poem. Who hasn't at some time in their life just wished for a chance at being the superhero? I really liked the fact that the negative side was also brought up too. After all you can't have the good without the bad.

I like the rhyme just as it is.

When my dreams aren't the stuff of nightmares or night terrors this tends to be the flavor :~)
