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
