Power

December 24, 2014

Here is a powerful thought that I want to pass along. It is wrapped up in a poem that is simply beautiful. Thank you, Selasie, for writing poignant words from your heart.

Shalom,
Pat Garcia

Who can hold on to it?
Those who don’t have it
They want it
Those who have it:-
Some give it away
Some hold on so tight
When all is said and done
Both are the same
Power cannot be owned
It is always on a lease
No matter what, that lease expires
While you have it
You can share it and enjoy it
Or you can hoard it and let it destroy you
Power in whatever form or shape
Is a master often disguised as a servant
How you treat it determines your end
Power is borrowed
It never really is yours
No matter how heady it feels
And if you forget that
You will expire
Before your time.
