A Realization - Revisited


He
Who believes
He is powerless
Is a weak Soul.

He
Who realizes
He is powerless
Is a powerful Soul!

Poet's Notes about The Poem

I reworked this poem some 20 odd years after first writing it. The word man was changed to Soul since, at the core of being, that's what each of us are (at least in my highest universe!) .
