What Would You Change Scholarship Slam: Superpowers

Words
That's what I would change
Not what they are or how they sound
By my words
Change them
Add them
Gain them

Right now I can only feel in one word
Opera

The music is language
But without the music
The libretto is lost

Not to everyone
But to me

Even English
How much is there I don't comprehend
How many words am I missing

I want them all
The words
The languages
The feelings

Not all at once
Without discovery
But to hear new words
Sudden comprehension
A flash emotional experience

Like new notes
A new leitmotif
New melody
New to understand
But not already understood

Present and future discovery
That's what I want
That superpower is what I would change
Or add
Augment myself
With words
