It only took one accident
To change this man for life,
To speed him up in each event,
Come sunshine or come strife...
He must decide which way to go,
Between what's right and wrong,
Like Superman, he had to show
That he could still belong...
Beyond the speeding arrow's course
And faster than a car,
Yet not show off that tour de force,
Pretending he's a star...
But serving justice, nothing else,
In league with all that's good,
Beyond the news each paper sells
To every neighborhood...
To take that gift, improve his skills,
To show himself unique,
But not for glory or for thrills
That lesser mortals seek...
To make a difference every day,
So criminals don't win,
This was his choice without delay,
To fight and not give in...
Adventures wait this man sublime,
This red streak passing by,
This man who runs ahead of time,
Before each blinks an eye...
No more the weak-willed underling
Defenseless as can be!
Who knows what blessings he can bring
As he makes history?
And so, a superhero's born,
A champion who cares,
A man no longer quite forlorn,
So frail he never dares...
With stronger heart and stronger soul
And stronger spirit, too!
God help The Flash to take control,
To do what he must do!
