Super Power: Courage
I was a fast runner.
I really thought I was a fine tuned machine, where every piece of me was a completely different team of people working together to accomplish this one goal! “To run as fast as I could!” Every super hero has a gift
And I thought my gift was to “Bolt!” I was like lightning!
You’d think that I really just loved to run, but that was not the case.
Super hero’s have weird ways of finding out that they’re special.
And finding out what they’re really good at.
For me I found out that I was good at running because of fear.
Fear of David, the Cypress Bully. Class would let out back in 1979 when I was 7 years old.
David would see me from across the way and for whatever reason I was his enemy! He and his band of larger than me kids would put one foot in front of the other in quick bigger kid foot steps towards me. The looks on their faces were not expressing love.
And some how I always knew to just run!
Run! Like nothing else mattered.
Run! Like it were the end of the world!
Run! Like the bathroom was too far away and the turtles head was peeking out of its shell!
I’d make it home and at peace.
And the bad kids were no where to be found most of the time.. Until the day they caught up
and waited for me outside.
My super hero partner at the time was my Mom. I didn’t realize it until later, but she was my power source. When I arrived home she always had a meal ready for me, and I needed it after draining all my energy running.
On this one day after eating with my mom. She told me as the bully was outside waiting for me, now your going to go out there and stand your ground.
I was afraid for my life,
Tears running down my face,
I plead for her to let me stay inside.
But she pushed me out.
I sucked it up, went right up to David and punched him in the face!
He stepped back and his nose got red as Rudolph’s nose,
He looked at me confused
And walked away.
I never had a problem with David again.
I continued running,
But I found out what my true super power is:
And I thank my mom for helping me find that.
Could be why I love singing.
