The Powers Within - Poem by selvin mcrae

The Powers Within
Written by Selvin ‘Ewan’ McRae

The things that life offer, appears not to be enough at times
Seems as if I can never be satisfied, I realized
Still I can never change what it has in store for me
I just take one day at a time, letting it be

I meet and greet different people on a daily basis
Some becoming friends, while others perfect strangers
Some will stick around for a while
While others lingers, as a problem child

I hear and listen to my advices
I see and I follow good examples
I learn from my mistakes and my mishaps
Imperfectly I try to survive, in this worldly trap

I could see through the eyes of an eagle
Having multiple visions of the future
I listen to them cheering on the air
Unaware of tomorrow’s cruelty; beware

I’ve entered races I knew I wouldn’t win
Still yet I’ve created my blue print
Make decisions to comfort my interest
Decisions which sometimes are my hardest

I have a will though that is much stronger than others
A spiritual power which allows me to conquer my fears
Yet some will never understand my ways
Being human they criticize and try to destroy

But my powers will be illuminated so bright
Bright enough to identify the fool from the wise
Being able to figure the hypocrites and their lies
All because of my Powers, on the inside
