Have you ever been asked the hypothetical question: “if you could have any superpower, what would it be?” When I was younger, I used to want to be invisible. Aside from the (perhaps) obvious reasons that a teenage boy would want to possess this talent, it seemed like the ideal ability because you could do literally anything you wanted to do, go anywhere you wanted to go, without having to pay, without being seen, without being judged. And to a teenager, this seems just about perfect.
Now that I am (a little bit) older, I think I would prefer to be invincible. (More) confident and sure of who I am and what I want to do, and (somewhat) more able to pay, all I want is to remain strong and together and whole as I pursue my dreams.
When you are young, you aren’t concerned about being invincible because you feel like you already are.
When you are old, you don’t worry about being invisible, because it feels like you get more invisible all the time.
So now I pose the question to you. Yes, I know, it is kind of silly. But if you could have one power, one superpower, any superpower, what would it be?
