THE ABUSE OF POWER

The vestiges of your exploitation
have left all of us fragmented
now the center cannot hold

Verb conjugation in English is nightmarish. You’re an amazing writer.

Power taken leads to abuse as opposed to power given that is respected.
Great concentration of the idea. We are becoming a lost thing hoping to be found by a uniting power we love.
Awesome,
Mark
