I’m Not Superman


I wrote these lyrics when I was going through a difficult time. Everyone seemed to be telling me to just forget it, it won’t happen again, why can’t you just drop it etc etc.  Even though I was doing my best, things would still happen and remind me and everything would come up again. It was like I was watching a scary movie and every time I got past the part that made me jump, someone would hit rewind.

It also reminds me of this time of year. As you know I am an introvert and this time of year always makes me anxious. I get thrown out of my routines. Christmas parties and Christmas shopping and the crowds of people and just the busyness of the season gets to me. I am trying to do better at just taking a few deep breaths and remember the real reason for the season, our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ was born. It was just a few years ago I couldn’t have said that. I am a work in progress, one that I know will always have improvements to make.

Anyway, here are the lyrics. If anyone wants to put music to it and make it a song, feel free to contact me to collaborate.

I’m Not Superman

You made me who I am

They think I’m superman


These feelings I conceal

I don’t know how to feel

They say I am strong, that I am strong

I hide my thoughts that I don’t belong, don’t belong


Honestly I have to say I am a mess

This is the truth I must confess

I can’t speak but inside I’m screaming

Truth is I’m not even breathing


I carry these burdens on my own

My heart is always a stone

I can’t let them see, they can’t see

I’m not who You want me to be


If I let it go, if I forgive, can I forgive

If I surrender can I learn how to live

If I let it go am I weak

I try to ask but I can’t speak


Trying to be who God made me to be

Their words are killing me

They can’t seem to understand

I’m not superman, I’m not superman


You made me who I am

They think I’m superman


I pray to live my life for you

Do they see you in all I do

They just don’t understand

I just can’t be superman
