Weds poetry prompt: ‘Silent Heroes’


This week’s prompt: Write a ‘super’ poem.

Silent Heroes

‘Not all heroes wear capes’
The short-sighted saying states;
No, some are in skin-tight suits
Or simply in a long coat and boots,
But nonetheless possess the power
Or simply wealth to tinker for hours
On shiny weapons and gadgets
(But still brood on a backstory sad and tragic).
Yes, riches or powers are required
To be the ‘super’ hero that inspires,
While the unspoken ones toil away
With their human limitations, day after day,
Finding those elusive cures and solutions
To mankind’s shortcomings and self-destruction
In their own way, meek and without violence,
Wearing only a cloak of humble silence.
