Power


Absolute power, corrupts absolutely.

Power is not granted, it is assumed.

But how is power gained?

Contemplating both well known phrases, an image appears in my mind of the thing called power.
I imagine a very concentrated source of power…and it’s explosive. So dangerous that life itself cannot be near to it. But wouldn’t exist without it. Does life assume it?
Explosive power, spewing out; life absorbing, expanding.
Power spews life – losing and gaining.
If gaining is assuming, what’s left to gain, once assumed?
Well maybe life assuming, dilutes its source of power.

In not granting assumption of power, life’s granted time to gain.
