Superman

The symbol which is right
chastised in the night
a spectrum of the flight
and power of my plight

Control is within me
my strength here to see
my weakness it must be
hidden from my enemy

To challenge me within
to test the strength of men
your honor I will defend
my courage it will not bend

But tests I demonstrate
to get me through the gate
though haters love to hate
I love and wear my cape

Which symbolizes me
I charge specifically
to share what all will see
I’m all I need to be

That person who is grand
the power’s in my hand
so here and now I stand
I am your Superman!!
