Hello, i been trying to write my own pow function but it's not working out.. when i enter "base 2, power 3" gives me 4... not sure what my problem is..

#include <iostream>
using namespace std;

int CalcPower(int base, int power)

int total;

for (int i =0; i<power; ++i)
     total = base * base;
	 return total;
int main(void)

	int one;
	int two;

cout <<"please type in your base" <<endl;
cin >> one;
cout <<"please type in your power" <<endl;
cin >> two;
cout << CalcPower(one,two);
