Superman


Listen
Just be quiet and listen
You can hear the sound
If you will only listen.

That’s right. You can hear it on the wind
From above
In the sky
And in seconds, he could be next to you.
His voice like a flowing river
His words to quench your fear
His presence carries hope
The answer to your prayers.

Listen again. The supersonic rush
When you need him
When you call out
Even when you are unaware.

What is he saying?
It’s the same for everyone
The words you can hear
“Do not fear. I am here.”

‘S’ is for Superman or is it for salvation?

  9. Never thought of God as being superman . I suppose God does have super powers but his sense of aesthetics would prevent him from wearing a superman suit:)
