"I may be on the side of the angels, but don't think for one second that I *am* one of them." ~Sherlock

I am not a superman,
But I can save the world.
I am not a savior,
But I can heal with words.
I can be grounded on this universe,
And they can bleed me ‘til it hurts.
I will make the sacrifice,
Of doubting my self-worth.
I understand the consequence,
I’ve been in the dark before.
I can make it out alive.
I can make it through once more.
I am only here because
There are still those I haven’t met,
And they will need my help.
I will face death soon but not yet.
But if I fall and don’t return,
Take my place and fight.
Not with arms and waging war,
But with a peaceful light.
Show those who oppose you,
That you are more than what you’ve been.
You can change the cosmos,
And all the stars within.
You don’t need strength or courage,
Nor bravery or might.
All you need is kindness,
And the heart to do what’s right.

I don't write poetry. I never have until this fell on my fingers, and the words thrust themselves n the keyboard. I suppose I DO write poetry.
