You Have The Power

You Have The Power

By Jfarrell


(inspired by a class discussion we had today)


The power to change the world is in your hands,

All of you;

You, you and, yes, you;

And not one word here is a lie,

Or wishful thinking.


Look around,

What do you not like?

What disgusts you, angers you,

Saddens you, depresses you?


You name it,

I won’t make suggestions,

I don’t need to,

You know what makes you angry.


You can change it,

Make it better;

And you only need to do 2 things:


  1. Believe in yourself.

    It doesn’t matter who you are,

    How smart, or not, you think you are.

    Every great person who ever lived,

    Believed in themselves.

    Whether we speak about Einstein,

    Or Bill Gates;

    What makes them different from you?


    So, believe.


  2. Act.

    Give a homeless person some food,

    Help that mum with her buggy,

    Run for election.


    Here endeth the lesson.

    Believe and act.
