Red Capes and Life

I heard the song years ago but didn’t hear the words

Until last night when I almost cried.

Heroes aren’t all that special

Because they walk upon the earth.

He’s just a man making it safe for all to sleep

While looking deep inside of him to know how to feel,

Nothing special, in fact funny with a red sheet

Wrapped around his imposing stance.

Can you stand tall and sense that life isn’t easy

Even though you’re there to catch the fall and save

Those who believe that flying is special

When you know it’s just what is inside of you.

(With gratefulness to Five For Fighting – Superman)
