Power Power!

Some wield it around for the world to see
Some use it for the sheer purpose of it
Power over a people they huddle together
Power over a person is destructive
Your voice is taken away
Your innocence is stolen
Your life is changed forever
Young or old
Big or small
Boy or Girl
The innocence of the victim is tainted for gain
Taken for vile reasons
But other persons' innocence is broken
Taken away unwillingly by the presence of such
Its a power game and it is wrong
If it was a terrorist they would hunt him down
They would track him down
A high price tag would be on the head
That's what should happen in this situation
A price tag for the source
Hunting them down menacingly
For to kill a mind is evil
To take away innocence is wrong
