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.
