"How Superheroes Learn to Fly"

This post is my reflections of our training as volunteer police officers, using the song "Superhero" by The Script.

The reason for choosing the song is due to the strong lyrics, which echoed the struggles of life and the fight to "make things right". For me, it wasn't easy and it was a truly emotional roller-coaster ride especially since after my ex-fiancee left me. But through all that a silver lining shimmered when I was finally accepted into the Singapore Police Force as a volunteer Police Officer.

"Superheroes" - The Script

"All her life she has seen, all the meanest side of me"
"They took away the prophet's dream for a profit on the street"
"Now she's stronger than you know, a heart of steel starts to grow"

"All his life he's been told, he'll be nothing when he's old"
"All the kicks and all the blows, he won't ever let it show"
"Cause he's stronger than you know, a heart of steel starts to grow"

"When you've been fighting for it all your life"
"You've been struggling to make things right"
"That's how a superhero learns to fly...." (Every day, every hour, turn the pain into power)
Valentine's Day Shenanigans. (Yes, we had training on Valentine's Day)
"All the hurt, all the lies, all the tears that they cry"
"When the moment is just right, you see fire in their eyes"
"Cause he's stronger than you know, a heart of steel starts to grow"

"When you've been fighting for it all your life"
"You've been struggling to make things right"
"That's how a superhero learns to fly"
"Every day, every hour, turn the pain into power"

"When you've been fighting for it all your life"
"You've been working every day and night"
"That's how a superhero learns to fly" (Every day, every hour, turn the pain into power)
Probably the best passport photo of myself. Haha...
Some Instagram Story nonsense.
"She's got lions in her heart, a fire in her soul"
"He's got a beast in his belly, that's so hard to control"
"Cause they've taken too much hits, taking blow by blow"
"Now light a match, stand back, watch them explode..."

When you've been fighting for it all your life
You've been struggling to make things right

BBO time!

I'm very thankful to God, for finally granting my lifelong wish. These past few months has certainly been a blast with my squadmates. Officially, we have 2 months to go before passing out, hopefully, the intake will still retain its camaraderie despite going our separate ways.
