What if you had the power?

by Live WeLL   Feb 21, 2008


What if you had the power
to help everyone in need?
To take the hands of those who've failed,
and help them to succeed?

What if you had the power
to bring everyone a smile?
To rid the world of sadness,
even only for a while?

What if you had the power
to brighten someone's day?
To be their lightness in the dark
and guide them through the grey?

What if you had the power
to stop asking "what if?"
and had the power to make a change
within this world we live?

What if you took this power
and put it to good use?
What if you made a difference
instead of always an excuse...

    Everyone has that power ... not to help everyone but do what they can, yet so many opt to turn a blind eye. So very sad

    After reading all 4 stanzas I knew there was something deep and true coming in the ending stanza. And upon reading it I said to myself "excellent voice in the ending stanza"

    You have penned this write with the love and compassion that lays within your heart and it shines in the 2 ending lines hun.
    Bravo! ~claps~ excellent message you've woven into this write.
    Well done, excellent read

    Aweeeeee.
    I really, really liked this one! Better than the other one you wrote, even.
    It's one of the better ones on the site, I must say.

    I liked it because it flowed very well. The rhyming was perfect (no catch-ups) and the point beautiful.
    You have some talent.
