Christopher Reeve - Poem by Genevieve Pilat
I flew around as Superman
A comic idol I have become
Praised by ages both the young and old
A celebrity that I now was.
With my outer looks I was physically fit
To do anything that I pleased
What a symbolic idol I appeared
To my fellow American fans.
One day I took a horseback ride
Like any other normal day
When a sudden leap of tragic fate
Led to my horrific state.
And now I am permanently paralyzed
Unable to live my life the same
But every day I dream of those glorious days
Like I was Superman.
