Poetry: Love and Power By @PoetInitiative


Love and Power

Two things that dom­in­ate our lives but aren’t that dif­fer­ent from each oth­er,
The love you get from power can be just as deadly as the power you get from love,
They’re inter­twined like des­tinies from up above,

Because when you feel that warm embrace of love from those around you,
You feel as if you can’t be stopped in what you want to achieve,
And when you get the power to com­plete some­thing you’ve always wanted to,
You receive more love from those around you and it helps you to believe
… that you’re invin­cible

But both can be taken away just as eas­ily,
When you feel the love for your­self slip­ping, you try to hold onto it know­ing it wont last,
Like a crumpled piece of paper it can be flattened but nev­er be per­fect,
And when you feel like you’re los­ing power over a situ­ation,
Some­times you just got­ta let it go, look back and reflect,

Look to your­self .. Love your­self and find your power from with­in,
Because there is no such thing as a life that’s bet­ter than yours,
So when the love and power from oth­ers looks thin,
Remem­ber that you have your own two feet on the floor,

And when the power of love over­comes the love of power, the world will finally know peace

The fol­low­ing two tabs change con­tent below.
