Super Nova

Can you feel me
Incandescantly aglow
Beyond

There is a wavelength
Hemispheric
Away

I
am
a
kite

Dawn
in it`s
flight

Find me
Hithero
I am
not

Souper powers? - - - - for the Super Comp

Souper powers?

The idea of Flying
Without me dying
Is too much to bare
I would be too scared

The thought of invisibility
Without physical agility
I would certainly misbehave
But how would I shave

Telekinesis moves me
But I couldn't let it be
Prefer not to levitate fountains
I'd want to move mountains

Super human feats of strength
Stretching out pennies out into a length
Would it make my lover gush
If every hug was a crush

Reading someone's mind
You never know just what you'd find
Commonly I'd disengage
Most folks minds are just a blank page

I am tired of all the bitchin
As I slog here in the kitchen
I'd like the power to make good soup
Cause what I'm making tastes like poop

A true Souper Power

Mind Over Matter

They toyed with the possibilities,
They played with the ideologies,
Bringing forth something that was evolutionary,
And that what was once probable
Has been created as unstoppable,
It has become something beyond extraordinary.

Theyíve given me this ability,
Without limit or tranquility,
To move things with the power of my mind,
But I will not obey their orders,
When they want me to murder,
I refuse to be their weapon against mankind.

I got away from their evil clutches,
Without throwing any punches,
I escaped from their secret military compound,
Now I plan to seek and bring justice,
Without ever making any ruckus,
Iíve gone rogue and dwell in the Underground.

I am among you hiding in plain sight,
Ready to fight for what is right,
A hero in the shadows without a claim to fame,
Because I will not waver or stagger
With this power of mind over matter,
The world will never know of me or my name.

Super

 
A flick of wrist
A moment of concentration
And pebbles dance
Like dangling participles

A tiny leap of imagination
And I soar to stratosphere
Caressing clouds
In starlit bliss

A casual glance
And I know hunger,
The frantic thoughts
Of passing seagulls

I lay down my pen,
Return to earth
And feel the bitterness
Of oblivious passers-by
And the inevitable invisibility
Of homelessness

Humility gifts
Superhuman sight
To see the tired and hungry
Cowering in corners

And the empathy so rare
That compels me
To open my pack
And share

That joy is truly Super

Strength of Armor

Can you feel all my strength? It is strong enough to lift
Mountains that have tried to tear and weigh me down.
It is radiating even stronger than Greek God Kratoís gift,
Being strong enough to tear through this dead end town
And all itís no good people. It is powerful enough to start
Every tornado or hurricane that touches down and slams
Into the west coast shoreline. My precious and gold heart
That will be leaving everyone behind in pieces while I am
Still standing here with my indestructible, yet solid armor.
People want a war? Well, they got one once they stand in
My way or path of destruction. I am a beginner and starter
Of every fire. I help everyone drown in his or her own sin.
