Abuse of Power


Abuse of Power

He sat there with no esteem
She sat there with confidence
He sat there with malice
She sat there with peace

He sat there with an agenda
She sat there with none
He spoke to reduce her light
She spoke to protect it

His behaviour was devious
Her calm was affected
His motives were destructive
Hers were of survival

His power he abused
Her humility kept her grounded

He was her superior
She was the most dignified

Her light grew brighter
His light was extinguished
