Superheroes surround us.
There’s no readily apparent superpower,
no mask or special suit, no cape to give them away.
You need pay heed, or you’ll never guess how
their (whispered) actions speak louder
than [shouted!] words to reveal their true identities.
(Note: Appearances may be deceiving.)
Though they seem exhausted – beaten up (& down)
by all manner of evil foes & villains,
most still manage (somehow)
when all is said and done (against all ap-
parent odds) to foster truth and inspire integrity
while still maintaining patience (mostly);
to muster a tired smile, hang on to hope (by both hands),
and come back to do it all again
