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:

by Ladeen

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

manipulates others

with their power of strength

that serves as a weakness

limited time to eradicate fear.
