POWER TO CHANGE
[Dedicated to my mother]
Give me the power to dare,
to reach the heights with no fear,
Instead of meekly stand and stare.
Give me the courage to defend,
the innocent from injustice of any kind,
Instead of simply sit back and pretend.
Give the strength to protect,
the unique and wild to keep them intact,
Instead of finding excuses to destruct.
Give me the heart to offer,
whatever is left in the coffer,
Instead of walking past those who suffer.
Give me the chance to dream,
Give me the courage to dare,
Give me the conviction to do.
GIVE ME THE POWER TO CHANGE,
THE POWER TO CHANGE MYSELF,
TO CHANGE MYSELF FOR THE BETTER.
(Poem by JP)
