Who Am I? - Poem by Erica Olson

I am your constant companion.
I am your greatest helper or heaviest burrden,
I will push you onward or pull you down to failure,
I am completely at your command,
Half the things you do you might just as well turn over to me and I'll be able to do them quickly and correctly,

I am easily managed
you must merely be firm with me,
show me exactly how you want something done and after a few lessons i will do it automatically,
I am the sevant of all great individuals and
at last of all the failures as well,
those who are great, I have made great
those who are failures i have made failures

I am not a machine, although i work all the machanics
and basics as a machine plus the intelignce of a human
You may run me for a profit or run me for a wreck
it makes no difference to me

Take me, train me, be firm with me
I will place the world at your feet
Be easy with me and i will destroy you
Who am I? ?
