Writing prompt: What superpower would I love to have?
Let’s face it–superpowers are super cool. The ability to have some sort of strength or intuition that can get you out of situations before they even happen, or that can keep you safe. Or even better, having some power that can keep the city, town, or planet safe…I mean how cool is that??
The ability to leap buildings, or process an enormous amount of information in microseconds, or fight evil gods and save the world from destruction, all sounds amazing.
If you’re a trekkie like me, the empath superpower of Deanna Troy would be really awesome. She can read a room and pick up vibes without anyone saying a word. But I don’t know…some say cancers already have that intuition. So maybe that would be a redundant power for me to have.
So there are a few to choose from…flying, unfathomable strength, reading a room, data processing skills…there are a few options on the table.
I know this will sound cheesy, but I’d want something that helps the greater good. I’m not sure strength or intuition will fix any of the world’s problems. I would say the biggest thing that this world needs is kindness, and if there was some way for me to spread kindness and understanding, that would be the superpower I’d much rather have. This world lacks compassion and lacks caring.
There are tons of people who love and care and go above and beyond for humanity every single day. And they are absolutely amazing.
But there are a lot of people who don’t. And they are the ones who make things difficult. If I could approach people and sprinkle kindness on them, and give them ability to listen to others and feel love to their fellow man, that would be the superpower I’d love to have.
Now don’t get me wrong. I feel like disagreements and different perspectives are the spice of life. Hatred, abuse, and lack of caring for others…that’s where the world needs some help in my opinion. And somehow I’d travel the world, showing up in a flash to sprinkle kindness wherever it’s needed.
It’s so cheesy, but seriously…why can’t people just be nice? Right??
Have you ever thought about this? What superpower would you like to have?
