To Listen to See,
to Feel and to Be,
and to Love.
When a neighbour needs to cry,
You can listen if you try,
Just being there can help to dry their tears.
You don’t even need to speak,
It’s some comfort that they seek,
From your super power to listen to their fears.
When you stop and look around,
there are wonders to be found,
If your mind would only set your vision free.
Watch the acts of selfless kindness,
As they fight our selfish blindness,
Take the blinkers off your super power to see.
You have a gift so very real and that’s your super power to feel,
It may be guilt it may be jealousy or guile.
But don’t be misunderstood,
you can use this power for good,
To be happy to be selfless and to smile.
You have choices every day,
In what you do and what you say,
the choice is yours and can be used to set you free.
Throw away your angst and rage,
Escape the shackles of your cage,
You have the key, and it’s your super power to be.
But the greatest time I’ve found,
Is when love is all around,
It’s a mighty power bequeathed from high above.
When you give it out untold,
It will return a thousand fold,
The greatest super power you have, the power of love.
So know this when you feel zero,
That there is no I in hero,
Remove your mask and show the world your face.
There’s no need to combat danger,
Simply act to help a stranger,
And you’ll move the world to be a better place.
(Oh and Gordon, you can also have wings!)
