The Very Nature of Power

This came to me from a distant planet
Didn't have a form then but attracted me like a magnet
It said it would be loyal to me forever
Its now my prized possession and i call it power
I now had the power to do everything
I had assumed full control of my life ,I was a king

It was like a friend to me
But one day i was made to see
My inability and helplessness to give up power at right earnest
My relations strained
and many hearts pained
by the merciless power
that i had discovered
for i realize today
i never possessed it
For it enslaves me and rules me and my life
But i haven't given up yet
I shall give it up for sure
Though it still attracts me as a magnet
