A very curious and highly intriguing poem! The truth is that this poem IS about OURSELVES! There are no "super" heros, so to make the world--at least partially--livable, we all should/must do things that, at least to us, seem superhuman....what is so wonderful about this poem is that you never come right out and say this, but anyone reading MUST think of it even if they do not agree...a brilliant conception ... bravo ... bravo ... bravo ... michael
woot woot for this peice. It has an interesting way of attaching incredible characters with credible feelings, emotions, and vices. Being a comic book nerd myself, I saw several references in here that have actually happened in the comic books, so I can answer your questions :P...
My favorite hero is my father to me he is the man of steel. I know without him I would not be able to stand with my head high. Thanks for writing this poem it reminds me of how important having him here in my life. I was taking him for granted. But u made a great point without those people that stand up for u and make you smile each day where would we be; probably full of grief and cloaked in depression. You made your words flow quite nice some parts were a little off for me but overall it made its point and thats what i think all poems are supposed to do. I was reading and thinking about if it should rhyme, maybe it would have had that extra push it needs to be that greatt poem you were searching for to be your centerpiece. Consider revising alright. I am not calling this a bad write because it isn't. It is well written with a nice point now make it a great write. Could they ever allow anyone to get close or are they doomed to wonder the land all alone? Giving smiles to so many when one has hardly graced their face. More verses like that one could do this poem the justice it deserves.
Oh, I loved this poem soooo much. It really shows how heros (spiderman,flash and batman) have different lives where they all have to hide something. There identity , and they just cant live and have a real life. We all need a hero to protect us. Awesome poem inkpen
Aww, Akili I love you so much. You are my hero. The fact that people don't get what you are really trying to say makes me sad. There is good in the world Honey, people just won't open their eyes to see it. If I could just once show you how much good you do, I would, because Darlin' you do a lot. You are caring, even when you shouldn't be, you can make me smile on my worst of days, your laugh brightens a room, and you have this fun loving attitude with a hint of devil in it that just makes you freakin' adorable!
If Batman were to cry where would his tears fall? Would he let the world see them or keep them hidden? Would the world accept him if he did shed a tear in their sight, or would they turn their backs, and act as if he had never once done good by them?
People turn a blind eye, because they don't want to see the fact that the same thing is happening to them. No one wants to live with what they have, EVERYONE wants someone else to take care of their hardships, but NO ONE is willing to be that person to pick of the pieces of someone elses shattered life. It may hurt, but you just gotta get back up and go.
No one to love so that it would be easy upon them.
this could have been described a little better, than stated...
Would Superman ever bend let his lust take over for just one night in which he could have it all. Would he even need to get drunk?
that is why they are on tv... not an avid fan of any superheros, so really wont go into detail, but this piece had some emotion but it was lackluster, liven it up, maybe add a few metaphors in, but the fact of comparing tv personas to real life is rather amusing, but yet senseless... so this was a fun piece for you to write...
I'm not over-fond of commenting, but I like this one. Very much so *points to her favorites list* I'm not entirely sure that I understood it entirely, but the gist of it made it's way through my thick skull. Can you imagine actually being a superhero? It would suck after a while, I think... It might still be worth it, though, for the cool powers. ^.^
