This Power Has No End


Greater than a picked image,
One worships transfixed.
And...
Greater than a mighty storm,
To darken the skies into a rumbling fit,
Lasting for minutes.
If this is wished.
With thunder.
Lightning.
And...
Frightening winds.
To instantly clear it!
As the Sun shines bright,
Again!

Greater than a picked image,
One worships transfixed.
And...
Greater than a mighty storm,
To darken the skies into a rumbling fit,
Lasting for minutes.
If this is wished.
With thunder.
Lightning.
And...
Frightening winds.

Power to upset and re-direct.
This power has no end.
Power that can make a mind regret.
This power has no end.
Power that can change the flow of seas.
This power has no end.
Power than can bring people to their knees.
This power has no end.
Power that can soften up a hardened heart.
This power has no end.
Power that can make all conflicts stop!
This power has no end.
Power that can take every breath away.
This power has no end.
Power that can change night into day.
This power has no end.
This power has no end.

Greater than a mighty storm,
To darken the skies into a rumbling fit,
Lasting for minutes.
If this is wished.
With thunder.
Lightning.
And...
Frightening winds.

Power to upset and re-direct.
This power has no end.
Power that can make a mind regret.
This power has no end.
Power that can change the flow of seas.
This power has no end.
Power than can bring people to their knees.
This power has no end.
Power that can soften up a hardened heart.
This power has no end.
Power that can make all conflicts stop!
This power has no end.
Power that can take every breath away.
This power has no end.
Power that can change night into day.
This power has no end.
This power has no end.

Kind solace in a dying hour!

Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
