Holding this book,
Unleashing its power.
I control this book’s fate.
Brown.
Broken.
Beaten.
As if somebody had burned it,
Yet, it still stands triumphantly.
There is no way this book can be lost, or forgotten,
Burned, or thrown away.
I now have this power.
Whether for good or bad,
I will impact people’s lives.

I can build robots and skyscrapers,
Yet, tear down the most magnificent things of life,
In only a second.
Name it, and I’ll do it,
For I am not afraid of life or death, only false wisdom,
And false hope.

This poem was inspired by "The Runaway" Robot by Lester Del Ray

You acknowledge that there is false wisdom and false hope; not everyone thinks about this. Because you mention, "I now have this power.

Whether for good or bad, I will impact people’s lives," readers think about what they are doing with their lives and if it is good or bad.
