You’re Powerful

You say that you have no voice –
Yet, millions recite lyrics to your music

You say that you’re invisible –
Yet, millions immolate your style

You say nobody listens to what you have to say-
Yet, millions copy your dialect and slang and how you use it.

You say that you have no role models –
Yet, millions strive to be like you, all the while

You say that you have no power –
Yet, you influence millions, everyday.

You say you want a change?

Then look inwardly, because you have all the weapons to become the change that you want to see.

– Will Huff

One thought on “You’re Powerful

  1. Very thought provoking. And that’s what poetry should do, turn ya all around. The victim mentality is so insidious. Thanks for sharing.
