Wings Of Power - Poem by Lyn Paul

Some are weak
For they have known...
No other way
Under the wings of power.
Born under power
United with power.
And in years
That you are
Under the wings of power.
When the power is broken
The power now weakened,
Yet there is blame
For you
Have shown
Shown that you too
Have power
But inner power
That was always there
Yet you did not need to display this.
This power...
Yet now,
Your wings of power must be spread
Or you will lose
Everything you have become,
Under the wings of power.
Their power is stronger
More hurtful
There are more soldiers
But it is time to show
Your wings of power

It is time to fly!

Poet's Notes about The Poem

It is a very sad story! I have lost everything because of 2 powerful, clever, domineering people. I plan to tell my story one day.

    We all have inner resources which we don't always realise are there - until a crisis, when we have recourse to use them. There is wisdom in your pen. (Report) Reply

    Ones potential is shown by the inner power rather than the physical power. Yes, it can overcome any thing if the inner power is strong. Its no one else but only self can make it strong......Beautiful and Inspiring write.....Loved reading it. (Report) Reply

    human potential and reach is boundless, but achievable only when we delve deep to unleash the source.
    a powerfully inspiring poem, Lyn.

    With inner power we can conquer great heights... it is stronger than physical power... but many fail to recognize it and keep their wings shut. Only if we spread our wings and fly, we can realize how far we can fly! ! (Report) Reply
