My power

           The Holy One is my strength and my might;
           God has become my salvation. 

                           —Ps. 118.14

I have no power.
I can’t change the world,
         even my little part of it.
I have no power.

But God does.
Love is the electricity;
        I am the wire.
Touch the world
         and the electricity flows.
Touch the world where it hurts
         and healing can happen.
Touch the dark places
         and light emerges.

But I have no power.
I am only the wire.
God is the power.
