The Power to Touch Lives


Do you
have
the power
to
touch lives?

Are you defeated
in
every second
of
every hour?

Is your heart withholding the keys
to put many out of their miseries?

Were you created to make somebody see
what their purpose in life is suppose to be?

Were you put down here to be of some help
to uplift when others can't do it for themselves?

Have you answered your calling,
which was to keep others from falling?

Do you have any power?

Is your power distorted in some way?

Are you destroying souls
by
what you do
and
what you say?

Is the power
of
Life and Death
within
your tongue?

Then tell me
why do you choose
to
use it like
a gun?

Do you have the power
to
enlighten others,
who just might
be
a sister or a brother
of
another color?

Were you
created
to be
a blessing?

So until this time,
you would've
still been
guessing

Please let me know
when you will believe,
that
you have the power,
to help those in need

You have the power
to encourage
someone to succeed

So Yes,
You have,
the
'Power to Touch Lives'
If I've said it once,
now
I've said it twice

Poem of the Day

poet Sara Teasdale

Only in sleep I see their faces,
Children I played with when I was a child,
Louise comes back with her brown hair braided,
Annie with ringlets warm and wild.
