The following is the physics equation for power:

.......................................................................................

P = E/t or in words: "power equals energy per time"

and

E = Fd ... or in words: "energy equals force times distance"

therefore:

P = (Fd)/t ... or in words: "power equals force times distance per time"

also;

F = ma ... or in words: "force equals mass times acceleration"

P = mad/t ... or in words: "power equals mass times acceleration times distance all per time"

it also goes;

a = delta v/delta t ... or in words: "acceleration equals the change in velocity per the change in time"

and;

d = ((x1 - x2)^2 + (y1 - y2)^2)^.5 ... or in words: "distance is equal to the square root of the sum of the difference in horizontal position and the difference in vertical position"

therefore:

P = (m(delta v/delta t)d)/t

or:

P = (m(delta v/delta t)((x1 - x2)^2 + (y1 - y2)^2)^.5)/t ... or in words: power equals mass times the product of the change in velocity per the change in time and square root of the sum of the difference in horizontal position and the difference in vertical position all per the change in time

The above is quoted straight from a standard physics textbook.

...................................................................................

m = Your diamond strength, crystal bravery a faceted fortress tempered by your self-love

delta v = From the cold insecurity of night to the sun shaking your hand each morning while your heart drums life's confirmation song

delta t = From temporal neutrality to that split instant your intuition knows . . . eureka!

x1 = Celebrating your demonic victories, the transformation to deity

x2 = Lying in your crib, frightened of your mothers sneeze

y1 = Forged impenetrable through triumph

y2 = Soft as your baby butt

.....................................................................................

P = (m(delta v/delta t)((x1 - x2)^2 + (y1 - y2)^2)^.5)/t

Power of Confidence = (Your diamond strength, crystal bravery a faceted fortress tempered by your self-love)( From the cold insecurity of night to the sun shaking your hand each morning while your heart drums life's confirmation song/ From temporal neutrality to that split instant your intuition knows . . . eureka!) ((celebrating your demonic victories, the transformation to deity - Lying in your crib, frightened of your mothers sneeze)^2 + (forged impenetrable through triumph - soft as your baby butt)^2)^.5/From temporal neutrality to that split instant your intuition knows . . . eureka!
