Who am I when I am
Powerless?
Penniless?
Pointless?
Who am I, Sir?
I am ME, that is who I am!

I am a Writer.
The same Writer who wrote
When times were fair
That same Writer that was there
Is within me now -
(Though full of care.)
I write, therefore I am;
I write because I (still) can.

Who am I when I am
Powerless?
Penniless?
Pointless?
Who am I, Ma’am?
I am ME, that is who I am!
I am a Master of Imagination.
With the power of thought
I create new worlds
And populate them with kind and thoughtful folks;
Folks, who do not rip each other off
Nor do they rip one another apart.
A Kingdom of Kindness, I create
And hope to live there
Before it becomes too late.

Who am I when I am
Powerless?
Penniless?
Pointless?
Who am I, Dear Reader?
I am ME, that is who I am!
I am never powerless
For my power is the power of the pen
To write all wrongs!
To awaken the Sleepers to the dangers
Bashing at the Gates
For sleeping, they so meekly
Lay aside dear freedoms…
Dear freedoms, dearly bought.
I am never penniless for I have the vast wealth
Of the imagination - with which I create wealth
For those who value free thinking!
For those who value free speech!
My life is never pointless
While I have breath left to make my point
And when those points resonate
With other powerless, penniless, pointless souls
We will stir one another up
To great and courageous Works
And Art
That will free the mind
Liberate the soul
Loose the spirit
If only our own.

Who are you, Dear Soul, when you are
Powerless?
Penniless?
Pointless?

Tell me
For I long to hear
Of your inner thirst
And hunger.

I will tell you who you are not.
You are not someone defined by purchased power
You are not defined by the wealth of banks
Nor are you vindicated by the opinion of others
Who have not walked an inch in your shoes…
Let alone a mile.

You are YOU
And that is enough
For ME.

One who has a friend
Has MUCH wealth, power, and purpose.
