Empowered [Prompt and Link for Writers Island]

By Charles Sapp II

is shouting “I am powered” to the world
with self actualization from a distant movement,
as aftershock waves permeate
what I stand for with gradual changes.

is plugging into the Sun,
absorbing its radiant truth
and uplifting those deprived of light and sight.

is the ancient souls
speaking wisdom through children voices
and digesting their sermon.
Standing still for eternity
and recording all movement that surrounds me,
a catalog of time,
a symbol of choice
erected from something grand.

is force carried
and moved on with solid grace,
integrity by design;
a metamorphism, a transition
from a selfless act.
