Power: What Is It?

Power comes in all shapes and sizes.
Something people have over others.
Humans have power, overused
Power sometimes.
People use power,
In many ways.
We misjudge power
We are given,
Use it on the ones without it,
And their falls are given.
Some use power to
Help others.
They use it to make
Everything great,
Make it nice for themselves or people.
That’s how the community grow,
How the world grows,
That’s how people grow.
People help each other grow,
Or they make something grow.
Like a company, or project.
People with power could help,
Or stop it.
They can change it or destroy it.
How would you use it?

A police officer and a pair of handcuffs. The artist drew an arrow with the word "power" from the police officer to the handcuffs to show that police have power over criminals.
