A Power Stronger Than Steel


A few simple words can make the whole world turn,

Setting your mind ablaze, and your soul to burn,
They can be used to instruct,
As well as to learn,
To create,
Passions are set on fire, minds are turned cold,
Numb with the lines that are ages old,
Spinning with pleasure,
Hearts are sold,
A tragedy?
A treasure.
Underneath these symbols frozen in time and space,
Is a warmth that only a person can encase,
A flame through generations,
Never to be debased,
A great endeavor,
