This week in my Creative Writing class. we’re going over poetry. One of our exercises was to create a poem based off a character from either books, TV shows, movies etc. Since Batman vs Superman is, coming out on Good Friday I got the idea for a poem based on Smallvilles’ Clark Kent. Smallville is my all time favorite show, so working on this poem was very fun. I got good reviews for it from my classmates, so I hope you guys enjoy it as well. Now I have only six more poems to complete 🙂
[ This would be from Clark’s POV in season 2]
Someday I wish to come clean and tell the world all about who I really am.
Holding in this secrets is what hurts me the most.
At least I told Pete although I worry about him knowing
Who else has a best friend from outer space?
Not only are my parents not biological, yet we’re not of the same race.
The sun gives me strength to lift trucks, tractors, and buildings.
I can run from Smallville to Metropolis in a matter of minutes.
Still I wish I could learn to fly
Bullets only puncture my skin.
Someone could get hurt if I sneeze
Small little rocks from my home planet do make me weak.
What does my future hold exactly?
What type of man will I eventually become?
Can I become the hero my father expects me to be?
Here I stand with all of this power, yet I can barely ask Lana Lang, the girl of the dreams, out on a date.
Will I even graduate?
In the future when the world knows my secret they could compare me to a god
None the less, I am still only a man, but a superman.
