Purpose Power - by Bob Atkinson


(c)2016 Bob Atkinson

we build our institutions
on an edge of landed gates
where never we expect to see
an ocean wave gyrate

do we find our senses dissolved
here in a puttered daze
where sensible building would predict
crashing waves from frequent gales

when you leave your element
time grinds your constructs down
which to say doesn't matter
you've earned your builder's crown

for in this world and universe
what's respected isn't towers
'tis just this fact that working hard
gives us our purpose power

purpose power drives all contained
in this universal bubble
"use it, or lose it's" not a saying
without usefulness uncovered

resolution sends a message to
those who built our world
that we deserve what we have
and live as useful tools

when we were given existence here
we were asked to perform well
how we treat our gift determines
how long we'll safely dwell

dwell in an environment
which sees to all our needs
as long as we refrain from hate
and tame our wildest seed
