Power - Poem by Mixo Malepfane

Power is so sweet but so bitter
It is so strong but very weak
It will unite us and disperse us all
For power defends but it attacks

I have never seen it naked
All I see is the strength of power
It has never been vulnerable
Maybe it is because it has no feelings

Is power a human emotion
For power does not care
It has no regard for human life
All who try to see, find, use it, it destroys

So why do you want to be powerful
Are you not human like them
Better you are, for you have seen them
I beg of you, forsake the road you have taken

For in the end you will perish
And what you seek will remain
My story might never be told
But if your madness for power prevails, they will surely talk of you for decades to come
Why do you always want what I have
