WILL POWER—YOU THINK

You’re sure.
You got it.
You understand.
You’re not complacent.
You say you know.
You have a brain.
You have a mind.
You use it, constantly.

You pick up your foot.
You lean forward slightly.
You place the foot down.
You lift the other foot at the same time.
You swing it forward.
You place it down.
You’re walking.

You think each action in walking, or did
You will it without thought?
You raise your arm to scratch your nose.
You think it? You will it?
You know how that works?
Your will?
Your will power?
Your connection to make it happen?
Your free will?
Your gift from God?
You think about this?
You should, shouldn’t you?
You’re a part of it all.
You’re spirituality.
Your you.

You study each other?
You’re made in his image.
You draw a line top to bottom.
You’re divided in half left to right.
You’re a mirror image on each side.
You draw a line across the middle.
You’re divided in half.
You’re a mirror image of sorts.
You think about that?
You think there’s something spiritual in
Your division?
Your creation in this form?
You should know thyself?

You as a young child struggle to stand upright.
You must stand, horizontal to the Earth, head upright--toward heaven.
You must walk.
You will it.
You learn.
You make it happen, often before you can talk.
You think about this?
You think there’s something spiritual in this?
Your standing upright?
You think God made us this way for a reason?
You think he willed it in creation?
You wonder why?

Your inner strength.
You think it’s tied to your will?
You think it is will power?
You think it’s fortitude, guts, stubbornness?
You think it’s spiritual?
You think it’s a gift from God?
You’re made in God’s image.
You’re a part of all nature.
You have a purpose.
You’ve been made for that purpose
You have meaning, purpose, all of you and,
Your parts.
Your will power.
Your free will.
You’re inner strength.

You know the words.
You’ve said them often.
“Thy will be done, in earth as it is in heaven.”

You have a will.
You have free will.
You have will power.
You have inner strength.
You have a mind.
You have thought.
You have a purpose.
You have a Creator.
You have a Savior.

You are blessed!

There is a great message in here. The last stanza is great. But I had problems getting past the visual of the piece ... a long line of "you" was tough to look at. The points are all fantastic, but I felt the repeating "you" was overdone. That said, this piece still has a lot to offer. It's got some gems burried in there. Nice creative attempt, but I fear just a touch wide of the mark.

I like this. I don't have a problem with the You You You... except it reminds me of my Dad talking to me! (kidding Dad!) This is creative and totally cool!

Aren't we amazingly created?! Thanks.

YOU gave me a lot to think about, alot to ponder, and alot to digest. Very creative and a lot of incredible truth to it all. God is the center of all we do, all we think...Great Job!

Blimey - talk about food for thought! I actually really liked all the 'you's' - it puts me on the spot, challanges me. This one made me sit up and take notice. Well done! God bless.

I think the most important line is "Thy will..." and it's very effective to have it stand out in all of the "yous". I'm sure that was your intent--the reader's eyes are constantly drawn to that line. Thy will--Thy will...

Very, very good.
