Super Hero

Most folks look at me and think
“Ah, he’s just a little kid…”
But what they cannot see is that
I’m keeping something hid.

SHHH! I’m a super hero.
Not a single person knows:
Underneath my jeans and shirt
Are super hero clothes.

I cannot blow my cover
So when Mommy calls me in
I just try to act real natural
Without telling where I’ve been.

My super hero power
Is something I keep secret
But I’ll tell you what it is
If you promise you will keep it.

Can you believe I have night vision
And can see out in the dark?
So I can sneak out late at night
And fight monsters in the park?

But just like Superman
I have my kryptonite:
Inside my house, my powers fail
So I sleep with my flash light.

    I agree Lori – my 4 yr. old is pretty tough when he's 'fighting bad guys'… but forget to turn on the night light and watch out!

    I like its odds. But it's up to you to decide, Ron — don't forget to 'vote'!

    I have 3 boys and it's like she wrote this for them. I think every little boy has dreamed about being a super hero at one time or another, and in my book they all have. Great poem Jaime your are very talented.

  8. Jean Oelling Says:

    I thoroughly enjoyed Jaime's poem. It reminds me of both Kaden and Kahle. I think they are both super Heros and your poem just fits them both. You really have the tlaent to write poetry and I vote for yours above the others.
