Super Warrior

“They can be a great people, Kal-El, they wish to be. They only lack the light to show the way. For this reason above all, their capacity for good, I have sent them you… my only son.” ~Jor-El

Super Warrior

Up up and away the hero flies
Soaring through the city’s skies
Veering through the concrete maze
Searching for the one that prays

For miracle to come their way
Up on the bridge some kind of fray
A kid’s school bus hangs off the edge
Teetering upon the ledge

People cry and scream and shout
Frozen with fear and doubt
Chaos, bedlam, terror grips
As the school bus now quickly slips

“My God, the kids!” a man cries and
Jumping forward tries to land
A futile grip on the transport
He’s just a few inches too short

The vehicle careens and dives
Taking with it the young lives
For a moment not a word
Then someone says, “Look, it’s a bird!”

“No it’s plane!” someone else cries
But then they see him in his guise
They shout his name and all rejoice
But he hears just his father’s voice

“Live as one of them, my son
To find where your strength should be done”
The bus plummets towards the blue
He feels winds lash but powers through

“They can be great, they wish to be
They only lack the light to see
The way to go and since they’ve none
I’ve sent them you, my only son”

His father’s words always ring in
His mind wherever he has been
He swoops under the bus before
It crashes into the cold shore

The kids look out their windows and
In unison give him a hand
They cheer and shout and jump around
As he gently  sets them down

They thank him for all those he’s saved
But praise is not what he has craved
He flies up and gives them a smile
Hoping that after a while

The light he casts will show the way
To all the good they can display
To all the greatness they could give
If for each other they would live
