18. Your Power

helping-hand

You have the power to change a life;

To turn it from the pain and strife.

You have the power with your words,

To make them feel cool or like nerds.

You have the power with each breath,

To contribute to or stop a death.

You have the power inside of you,

To change what they will think and do.

You have the power just like me,

To help the lame to walk and the blind to see.

You have the power at your core,

To change a person’s life, forevermore.
