I Wish I Was a Super Hero

Posted April 24, 2012 & filed under Poem of the Day.


I wish I was a super hero so I could fly

to see the earth,

to fight evil

so I could help the world.

Maybe I could be rewarded with something

if I fight the most dangerous evil villain.

I could be defender of my city,

and the most famous hero in the world

and everyone would know my name!
