A short, hopefully humorous poem, with a message...I hope. lol

I donít think I could be Superman
Iím sort of scared of heights
Iíd sort of like to be Spiderman
But Iím afraid of spider bites

I suppose I could be Wolverine
But Iím afraid people would stare
Iíd consider being the Incredible Hulk
But raditionís bad for your hair

The fantastic four, now thereís a thought
But Iím not sure thatís for me
Benís too ugly, Johnny too hot
And Sue I just canít see

Maybe though I could be Reed
And lead the other three
Well maybe Reedís a bit of a stretch
I can barely take care of me

Captain America, him perhaps
I love his mighty shield
But I fear Iím not brave enough
When things get rough, I yield

If I could be a superhero
I wonder which Iíd be
Or maybe itís time I tried to find
The hero inside of me

Enjoyed Steve!!!

Well said. Love the honest perspective. I had a therapist tell me in my youth, "You are not Superman." She sadly did not believe me that I am going to Mars. I told her, "I'm not?" Glad I knew she was wrong.
See in Thirty million miles from here, Steve. BTW bring your cape, my is at the tailors.

Super YOU! That's all you need, loved this, and it sure brought a smile to my face, as I was thinking about being Wonder Woman, cracking that golden larriet hehe...

I love it. I would be
Superman if I could but then I'd be allergic to Kryptonite.
God Bless,

Cute one, Steve. Maybe I could be conned into being Bilbo Baggins. He always had to be talked into everything, and would never think of doing anything heroic on purpose. Yep -- an accidental hero is more my style :-)

I'd wanna be Space Ghost,
I used to think he was the most,
With a power ray out of his hands,
And invisibility to the delight of his fans...Ed & Rufuz (w00f)

All comic book readers can relate to your poem. It was fun to read and had a good message.

Very enjoyable poem with good rhythm. Love the humor and the message! Nice work.

Perhaps your name could be "Super Poet" because this certainly made me think about who I am, hope to be, and aspire to be. I agree with Julie - this belongs in a children's magazine!

God bless you. Kathy

Perfect ending to a wonderful write.

Excellent bit of inspiration presented within a humorous piece that made me smile. Yes, we all have one of those superheroes inside of us...just have to uncover them and bring them out into the light. Well said.
