Superpower

Foisted upon you
An impossible situation
Expectation beyond
Safe intervention

Nonetheless
Dressed for the
Occasion
In an outfit
Beseeming you
You defy
Expectation

Challenging
Injustice
Looking sharp
& gorgeous

With flowing blouson
& heart-shaped
Sunglasses
You take on
The questions

Solving equations
Getting through it
Looking amazing

No one expects
Your sheer resiliency
Little do they know
You’re not broken easily

Instead you soar
& you fly
Aesthetics your armour
Your salient superpower
