This poem is based on an a brainstorm on the word POWER during Books and Flicks Club. Everybody threw out words that came to their minds when they heard the word POWER. Some of the words were Love, Respect, Government, Control, Change, Beauty, Authority, People, Race, Energy, Manipulation, Vanity and Education.
Step two was to write one positive line about power and one negative line about power: Here’s Ladeen’s lines:
We all come from different races
with beauty that’s a pretty face
but without respect and education
where would we be placed.
Change is what we need
and power to stabilize
but with a government with corrupt authority
will only lead to manipulation.
A soul displaying no luv
with their power of strength
that serves as a weakness
limited time to eradicate fear.
