Wish I Could Be a Superhero

I wish I could be a superhero

I wish I could heal all the wounds of the world 

Make everything better

Fix all the evil that's unfurled


I don’t want to fly above the clouds

Or stretch a mile from my bed

I don’t need to be super strong

Or project thoughts from my head


I want to be a superhero

But not for the ability

I want to mend the world’s strife

I don’t need the nobility


These are real-world problems

The evil plans that unwind

Our corrupt government

Is the only evil mastermind


Everything seems to be going wrong

Our nation’s falling apart

People are losing their minds

While others lose heart
