The Power To Share Happiness - Poem by John Sensele

The power to share happiness
Lies in your hands
Where your decision wipes away pettiness
To promote humility, serenity and inclusivity brands.

The power to heal the weak
Who lie forsaken and beaten
Depends on how quick you deploy a slick
Strategy to combat their foes and challenges for certain.

The power to live longer
Lies in choices you make
To crumble or to grow stronger
As the sleeping lion in you comes awake.

The power to advance
In the face of adversity and iniquity
Lies in how far perseverance and persistence
Incentivise, strategise and energise temerity.

The power to make a difference
Depends on how much you focus on the bigger picture
That lies deep within your conscience
To create for all a brighter future.

The power to enjoy freedom
Lies in how much you long to forgive
At work, at church, at a watering hole, in your home
If tranquility and peace of mind you should receive.

The power to grow happy
Lies in the sacrifice you make for your love
That cries out for a permanent solution in a jiffy
When in your heart lands from God above.

The power for your social life to forge ahead
Lies in making tough choices
Between hopping from bed to bed
And listening to reason's warning voices.

The power to walk tall
Lies in promoting the truth
Always and playing fair ball
To all women including Ruth.
