The best ‘kind’ of power

So soothing is this knowledge I own
That nothing and no one can move my throne
No injustice, cruelty or neglect
Can alter my state or interject

And thus, the best ‘kind’ of power
Is holding space like the lotus flower
Not reacting to anything
Especially feelings that fear does bring

How mighty are my reactions then
As from this space I choose again
Making choices for the love of me
Knowing I make them most gracefully.
