Shazam – Grace Rafferty

Will anyone come from above?

My name is Grace Rafferty I am 11 years old and I go to Townsend church of England school.


In the midst of the night, 

Darkness fills the air,

And Villans take flight.

No one can stop their reign,

Only one,

Someone so incredibly insane.

Where is the master?

The one who knows the way,

The one to fix this disaster.

Is there anyone out there,

To save all of us,

Someone to clear this wicked air.

We start to forget how to love,

How to be ourselves,

Will anyone come from above?

When all hope is gone,

When no one believes,

Something in the dawn.

Could this be the one?

The mighty leader,

Maybe he can fix what has been done.

He sweeps down,

And with one fist,

Repairs all the around. 

And with the snap of a finger,

All is done,

And the mighty silhouette is nowhere to be seen.
