Willing Us Forward

Bardia Behmard is an intern working at the Living Wisdom School in Portland. Here’s a poem he wrote for the blog about the importance of developing will.

“Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from an indomitable will.” —Mahatma Gandhi

Dear Will Power,

Without you
We’d all still be lying in bed,
Counting dots
On the ceiling

Without you
We’d still be stuck in our old ways

Wouldn’t have

Wouldn’t have


John Lennon
Wouldn’t have

Without you
Every book
Would be half done,
Every home
Half built,
And every meal
Half cooked,

Dear Will Power!

What would we do
Without you?

You will
The human race forward

Thank you
