If I were a superhero
It’s not just one
But many I would ask for .
Power to wither down injustice
Power to end wars .
To make people smile for reasons so silly
To freshen up again a dried up lily .
Vanish away a rich baron’s golden anklet
Steal the glamor from a proud starlet .
Fill it up in the palms of those
Who spend their lives carving for few more .
To open up gates of ice cream stores
For kids of all ages staring outside glass doors .
To let everyone’s taste buds feast for a while
With chicken , paneer and double egg rolls .
To harbor hopeful rays
Even in glistening summer noon
Fulfilling promises not late but too soon .
Shielding up women from dirty lustful looks
Punishing perpetrators diminishing crooked crooks .
Making people value emotions more in life
Forgetting daily squabbles in the blink of an eye .
How soothing life would be for each one out there
When all live in peace and get their deserving share .
Though we are not superheroes
Still let’s seek
To make lives a little better
Being humane enough
And not maddening selfish freaks .
