A man must have a journey Whether far or wide. Temptation, no matter what, Will be by his side. There's always need for power What's the power might be different And the means to get power Always seems to be switching. Obtaining power Doesn't mean complete satisfaction It's only a check on a list Or a temporary distraction That's why some satisfaction Are against the law or is a sin Because Utopia and Euphoria Are just myths that it brings. Being born with power Doesn't guarantee you it's yours, It can be taken away By someone trying to settle a score. You might not have the power to refuse, But you do have the power to choose Whether or not to abuse. Unholy and holy reside within Every human's might Because each day we choose To save or take a life. When power reaches a point When it doesn't know where it is That's the time our minds Get trapped away with it.
