My Hero - Poem by Alexander Coppedge

Let me tell you about a man
Fast stripped his clothes, a writer and paper man
Bent bar steel with bare hands
A giant who stood a common man
Didn’t drink liquor, smoke or curse
No drugs, magic trips, or pills and musk
He was humble, brave and true
Saved lives, dreams and some truths
A brother to another no noise to hear
A healthy fighter and chaser of fear
No one suspected him behind those specs
Known as humble and mild manner stuff
He leap over buildings and run pass trains
Flies beyond any aircraft into space range
Rescue his trademark and is known as Kent
Flaming red, starless blue on clear imprint
If you’re seeking heroes or one to relate
Remember Kent, his life and secret state
Kent wasn’t like us, he is a perfect man
No mortal, just loyal, Superman

Poet's Notes about The Poem

One proud figure of a man. I guess its the thought of what one might become. And what one should do. Not mortal but loyal. A Superman
