If I Were A Superhero...

If I Were A Superhero...

1 min 280 1 min 280

If I were a superhero,

I'd want to be the "know it all"

Of the lot...

With teleporting capabilities 

Effective every 20 minutes

Off to save every woman 

Being allegedly raped

In blackhole corners of terror

Where humanity cries

And In answer, is burnt alive.


If that's what it takes...

I'd work to my bones,

Would drop all my friends

And switch off my phone,

Won't give a shit about the money...

I'd Forget those magical symphonies

That're catharsis amidst human tragedy,

Cause 

My wake up call would be every roar in pain

That wouldn't go unheard again and again.


Uncovering clothes with brazen gaze

As the goons attack her dignity and grace

I'd rip their arms and behead them alive

And leave their pieces to rot with lice

Some leftovers would smear on the streets

Even dogs would reject the monster's dead meat

I won't hold back doing any of that

Until there are no more monsters

And no girl becomes India's daughter.
