You have the potential to do anything,

Fly a plane, build a castle, start a revolution,

Save a life, raise a family, break a record.

But if you give away your power,

You give away your future,

Your life,

Your only leverage.

Your personal power is your property and no one else’s,

Until you commit a crime,

Until you lose yourself,

Until you relinquish your right to life.

Let your power burn like a fierce forest fire,

If you don’t, it will be just as destructive.

Your power, your potiential, should only be

A weapon of progress; best wielded by your own two hands.

2nd poem of “How to be mentally strong” series
