Daddy's Footsteps
Chapter 10 Do I Have The Power

What power do I have?
What can I do?
All on my own
Who am I
Tell me, Who?

Do I have the power to make my dreams come true?
Am I really strong enough to rely upon myself?
To not worry what others may say?
To never ask for help?

What about the courage to admit when I feel week
Even if no one would ever know,
unless I told, and I chose
to be a meek

Blessed are the meek
For they shall inherit
The kingdom of Heaven

What about when I am doing a good job and I know it?
Am I strong enough to not look for outside help,
to point it out, or show it?

I realize that sometimes people in my life try to make me feel powerful
But deep down I don't feel all that great

And then there are those times when I am very happy with myself and nobody even acknowledged my effort

I've had a few smooth talkers in my life to try to butter me up

But talk is cheep and words are priceless
Say the right thing,
at the right time,
to the right person,

And opportunity,
mixed with a little
magic
manifest an altered reality

You can get lost in fantasy,
loose yourself in ecstasy,
join together as one,
in intimacy

And ride off into the sunset
live together forever,
Happily ever after,

The End

But usually
Words are very beautiful
and yes some are very powerful
but they just spark the begging

We have to do the rest
There's no magic spell
their not answer to the test

It's like faith without works
There is no hope

So I appreciate the words that people say
and even more the ones they write
but it's up to me to give them power
What I choose to believe,

Stay true to myself, ultimately
believe in myself,
Do it for myself
Be happy with myself

My own power,
Well, we'll see

Again a poem of inspiration which very few could write like you.
Best for me was:

But talk is cheep and words are priceless
Say the right thing,
at the right time,
to the right person,

And opportunity,
mixed with a little
magic
manifest an altered reality

I have now read the whole book of our life, and learned a lot of philosophy, but not much about you. But hey it's your story. You can write it any way you want.
How does your life compare to your story?

You have talent, character, and heart my friend.
These should carry you to your goals, whatever they are.

Thanks for sharing your story,

Rich
