This is one of my favorite poems I have written for BYU-Idaho’s Last Poet Standing. The prompt was an original superhero. I decided to write from the point of view of a mother encouraging her child who struggles with being different. The specific difference I wrote from was Asperger’s Syndrome, but this relates to anyone who has ever felt that they were dumb, different, or not included.
