Empowerment’s Courageous Truth

When you announce ‘empowerment
Consider well the word you use
Stick to its own courageous truth
And do not bend it to your will

Corruptions forced upon the word
Will wear its very meaning down
To plunge it crippled to a pit
In chains and blindfolding of will

Empowerment comes from deep within
To meet the need where need there is
It works to fight its battles well
And to extend the health and will

Don’t plunge the beauty of its wit
In fear and anger from its height
But work to save it – give it weight
