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 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.
