Power - Poem by Edwina Matthews

Play Poem Video

To some power is guns
To some power is knifes
To some power is the ability to read, and write.
To some power is control
To some power is a fist
To some like Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. power was words.
To some power is like a trapped animal trying to get out of a cage.
To some power is love
To some power is art
To some power is money
To me power is knowledge
So what is power to you?

    To me, power is in myself. power is something that comes from me, from everyones self. power is what we create for ourselves, and your poem describes the different powers we create for ourselves.
    With respect.
