It is not worth dreaming of being a superhero,
using superhuman powers for the good of humanity
brings no happiness to you,
especially since the world is so thankless
and will brand you a threat, for diplomatic reasons.
You will be answerable to a hundred commissions,
and you smallest actions will court controversy.
People will go after you for saying and doing the right thing
while vigilantes with their own twisted agendas,
who take life on suspicion of violating their beliefs,
will go scot-free.
You will be shunned for being secular, liberal
saving the lives of people of a particular religion
will get you branded a terrorist.
Might as well keep your powers a secret,
and keep to yourself forever.
