For a Friday: poem by Jennifer


Power, an oft-grievous foe,
can scorch the path
of the mightiest man--
even when righteousness 
steels his soul
and strength is his only sin.
Fear not the altered road
or the uncertain horizon.

We know true power
lies in the man's mirror--
framed by freedom and faith,
family and friendship.
Unfettered, he can move forward,
unburned, with love as his salve.
