For a Friday: poem by Jennifer

Power, an oft-grievous foe,
can scorch the path
of the mightiest man–
even when righteousness 
steels his soul
and strength is his only sin.
Fear not the altered road
or the uncertain horizon.
We know true power
lies in the man’s mirror–
framed by freedom and faith,
family and friendship.
Unfettered, he can move forward,
unburned, with love as his salve.
