November 21: A Bird, A Plane, YOU!

There’s always the typical you hear when someone is asked about superpowers.

I want to be able to fly.

I want to be able to run at the speed of light.

I want to be able to be invisible.

I want to be able to control time.

But why?

Does the person who wants to fly want to escape from the limitations they have been given?

Does the person who wants to run fast feel the need to get away from whatever it is that is holding them?

Does the person who wants to not be seen get bullied or go through something that makes them not want to be there?

Does the person who wants to control time have a memory they want to go back to, a time where everything seemed better?

There’s always a reason for wanting something…even something that they know will never happen. Superpowers will never happen, but an escape route or a better course is always given to those who pay attention.
