Poem 10, Prompt 22

A single feather is all it takes
To tip the scales
And bring royals to their knees
The straw that broke the camel’s back
The drop that made the cup run over
The pea that rendered the princess immeasurable pain

A butterfly living in Brazil
May flap its wings
And start a tornado in Texas
A snowflake that causes an avalanche
A spark that ignites a forest fire
An idea that brings about an entire revolution

One lone individual
With fire in their heart
Can change the course of history
The peasant girl leading the French to victory
The explorer who believes the world is round
The person who might be you who could do anything
