She says, “Yeah, he’s still coming, just a little bit late
He got stuck at the laundromat washing his cape”
daughtry, one of my favourite artists, is releasing a new album tomorrow. the first single, waiting for superman, has been playing in my head for a few months already, it just seems to get better each time i listen to it. just happened to stumble upon the video, which i hadn’t seen before, and it occurred to me that this song has a deeper meaning to it than i had realised.
the song is not about a helpless woman waiting for a man in tights, the song is about how each and everyone of us can be a hero, if we only remember the morals of superman: it’s not the powers he has, but what he does with them that makes him good.
however. being kind in today’s society is difficult. so many good deeds are criticized, even punished, and people often seem to let the thought “what’s in it for me?” be in the driver’s seat.
you want to know a little secret? the answer to that question is everything. as the saying goes; no act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.
let yourself be inspired, by daughtry or by this poster, and do one random act of kindness this week, without expecting anything in return. i promise it’ll be worth it.
