MY SUPERHERO


Loved to hear brave Hercules deeds,
Watched Superman for his flying traits,
Dreamed to be Spiderman for human needs,
Ironman merely against aggressive cats,
As childhood ceased mind got ease,
Hero changed and so did the dreams,
Romeo and Juliet started to please,
Riches and gold came through the beams,
In an age mature, there came a thought,
Looked all around, searched every corner,
In a single hero, Hero I sought,
Heroes my local and of the foreigner,
Had no powerful mighty flying wings,
No force to climb or hop like spider,
No extraordinary power no steel rings,
Neither was he a mythical ghost rider,

Beat of my heart, the sight of my eyes,
Father, my hero, reason of my rise.

    a great write, a great tribute - my cords are touched as i missed my HERO 15 years back; 15 years back when i was nothing but a student he used to be glad on life's little achievements, my little things, i used to be a V.I.P when he was there. how tasteless it is to stand up yourself after falling down with the realization that your hero wont come to take care of you, how cruel it is to win laurels without his happy shouts.i wish to see him, to hear his voice, things are piled up for sharing, complaints are unheard, joys are staying in the phase of no-celebrations, sorrows die their natural death without catharsis, tears roll-down with no hopes of being wiped out by a kindred hands.i miss my super-hero. : ( (Report) Reply

    Wonderful piece... first made me think of my lovely son who's hero at the moment is iron man but has been many different figures from buzz lightyear to spiderman but i was hoping that you were going to turn (as you indeed did) to a real role model in the end, one as you say cannot fly but as you see it let you be the success you are today by im guess grounded love and well thought out reactions...i also love that you titled this in capitals as it shows how important he is to you...tyvm (Report) Reply

    Superb one, with a flow like that of water.. all the lines contributing to make a greater whole with nothing superfluous.. what I like most in this poem is the changing heroes with changing time/age, but only one hero remains constant till the very end and that is father.... It hits me the most because U know my situation... Great write pal..! ! (Report) Reply

    Thanks a lot for your valuable comment on my poem.
    This poem portrays a truth that everyone's real superhero is their father. Whatever they seek in childhood, teenage and in later stages of life, they will come back and emulate their father's footsteps when they meet a crisis in life. Awesome ink! Loved it... Allah Bless You! :) (Report) Reply
