I don't know what you mean about an "affidavit of oath."  Do you want to write a power of attorney for yourself?  I recommend seeing a lawyer to do this so that it is correct and you fully understand it.  You can prepare a power of attorney online but I caution you to make sure you understand what you are doing and you follow all of the directions very carefully.  Any mistake may make the POA invalid.
