What Would You Change Scholarship Slam: Superpowers

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

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
