Learning The Use Of Power

Updated on November 18, 2013

Hints Left By The Wind

In the turmoil of it all

I see power exchange hands often

Abuse of such power

From managers who delegate their authority

Controlling their employees

So they have little say and become just puppets on a string

To angry adults who take out their frustrations on their young children

Helpless and vunerable

Badgered by words and left to their mercy

Often somewhere deep in the core of each family

From a possessive husband who dominates his wife

To children that disrespect their parents and grandparents

It looks far too easy

The damage is done

As the wind whirls around outside

It also can be destructive and cause great harm

Then again it can be the most wonderful when it lifts a kite high into the sky

Giving it life

The same air is shared by the birds and people

So we both have the great ability to travel far and wide

How fortunate we are to have the wind blowing in our direction

To cool us by the comfort of the air

To learn the proper use of power can benefit us greatly

Then misuse of the same power can hurt and cause more pain than good

Be careful and wise

Power is a tool like any other

For the good or the bad

You are the one to decides

      ChristyWrites Lets keep it going forever. There are so many ways power can be put to good use. A husband and wife who work together as a team to accomplish so many things. Our cat who constantly shows us affection exercises her power of love. Here are just couple of things that start my day . Thank you for reading and putting power in the right hands to do fantastic things.
