    Power

    We have it ... hold it ... use it ... abuse it
    Channel it ... desire it ... and misunderstand it
    We are charmed by it ,freed by it ,or enslaved by it
    We are told ... she has the power ... he has it ...  or they have it
    Elusive in its own right.....it's sometimes black as night

    So what do we as people do with the power within us?
    First of all recognize it  ... own it ... make it your mantra
    Not to used for ill, but for the good of things you want and need
    To be still and listen to that power, ride it like a wave ,and enjoy it to the fullest

    Power is a word used often in this world, but seldom undestood
    Because really in the end power is just a word
    Used to convey a feeling ...  that moves you or others
    In a negative or positive way

    So, who holds the power?
    We all do ,on a small scale ,or a greater scale
    We all embody some form of power

    I love the sentiment of this poem. "Power is a word used often in this world, but seldom undestood...Because really in the end power is just a word....Used to convey a feeling ... that moves you or others...In a negative or positive way" This is so true indeed. Great write. Thank you for sharing.

    Poetry is not the expression of personality but an escape from personality.
