When Superheroes Ruled
You were drawn to shades of blue
Loved the ocean and the sky.
Many plans for when you grew –
opportunities you would try.
Pink’s now your favourite shade,
not as bold as vibrant red.
Mums and princesses now played –
dreams of making home instead.
Superheroes ruled the roost,
battles fought and peace restored.
Fighting power’s now reduced –
Princess Anna’s now adored.
Forthright and full of spark,
always first to say your piece.
Now less keen to make your mark –
I watch your confidence decrease.
Brilliant doctor you would be,
boundless limits there for you.
You’ve lost ability to see
girls like you can do it too.
Superpower’s not so strong –
future vision’s lost its way.
Originality has now gone –
wish your doubts would fly away.
Lesa is an average person, living an average life and is moderately happy with her lot. There are peaks of bountiful happiness and pleasure and dips of turmoil and flatness. Lesa doesn’t let life’s set-backs knock her down or think she’s invincible when she achieves greatness. She’s finally realised that nobody is perfect and the purpose of life is to embrace it with all she’s got and to give what she can to others. Oh, and try to have a lot of fun along the way.
Lesa has no idea why she’s writing in the third person; she never does that.
