I wish that I were Superman
That would be really cool
I wouldnt have to be afraid
Of bullies at my school

Id have his x-ray vision
Id see through Teachers book
Id know the answers to my work
And every test I took

In Gym Id be the fastest
Id win each sprint or race
Id like to see the look on
That old Gym teachers face!

Id have an awesome costume
Id walk the halls with pride
When all the kids admired me
Id feel so great inside

Id love to fly to distant lands
Id go to Timbuktu
Id go and visit Santa Claus
And pet his reindeer, too

Id fly south to Bermuda
Where waves are ten feet tall
Id rollerblade in China
On top of the Great Wall

I know that this is just a dream
Cause Im not Superman
Im just a plain old average kid
Who does the best I can

I cant stand up to bullies
I dont have x-ray eyes
I cant fly, or go real fast
But heres a big surprise:

I know Somebody loves me
Hes stronger than a hero
His love has saved me from my sin
Im more than just a zero

His love is stronger than my fear
Hes with me every day
He gives me everything I need
And listens when I pray

So I might wish for super strength
And all those Super things
But I have something better
Ive found the King of Kings!

Hes with me when the bullies
Say things that make me cry
Hes with me when I take a test
He helps each time I try

He makes my legs strong when I run
He gives me joy each day
He helps me read of distant lands
Where some day, I might play

So I might dream of Superman
And I might wish I flew
But Im just glad that I can be
A child of God. Are you?

What a lovely message. I'm sure every child has dreamed about being a superhero at some stage! Young children particularly love rhymes, and this was well suited to their level.

Great poem. Kids will enjoy reading this.
Verna Cole Mitchell 06/08/07
This is a wonderful little poem. I can see how children would identify with the desire to be like Superman, as well as how they feel about bullies. What a great message!
