There Is Power

Location


 

There’s Power in words

And life in book pages

 

Breathe

 

Breath in that smell

Of characters and plot

See how they live?

 

Look

 

Look at the chapters

The way they seem

To pull you in

Like a lifeline at sea

 

Do you see?

 

Do you see why I write?

To save lives that otherwise may

Be lost to the confusion of the world

To save myself from the crushing

Never ending cycle

Of the world

 

Writing

 

Reading

 

Breathing

 

Eating

 

Necessary in our lives

In all of our lives

 

To learn

 

To escape

 

To feel the Power

Of others dead and alive

The power is ours

To write down our feelings

 

And thoughts

 

Do not fear the blankness of a page

Take solace in it

Realize that your life holds more than you can

 

Imagine

 

See

 

Understand

 

One day you will understand

And see the Power

And imagine the impact you left

The life in book pages is you

 

You are reflected

 

In everything you read

So look and smell and breathe and taste

 

It’s all yours

 

This Power of words

It is not only in books

 

It is you

 

In your words

 

In your thoughts

 

In what you do

 

Revel in it

There’s Power in words

And all of it is yours

What makes me Flawless?

 

This Power to write

This is who I am

And who I will always be
