All Power


If I could take the world
into my world;
If I could be God-like
what would I do
with my All-Power?

Would I make Peace
World-Wide?
What of Poverty?

I could gather all riches
to my self,
make my friends powerful or rich
or both;
help my parents?

Ask for more Power?
Use my Power to
make more Power?

What would I do with
All Power to do Anything?

Would I ask for Love?
Force someone to Love
me too?


I don't like All-Power
as I think about it.

What would I choose?

Could I have a few powers?
One or two?
All at the same time?

But even so
I would be
the only one.
and maybe lonely?

But if I could
and the price is lonely
why wouldn't I?
.
To have that power
would get me back
now
where I am now
lonely.

What good then
All-Power?

This will take
some thinking
out.

O Love! thou makest all things even
