Changing the world

 “Whose responsibility is

It to change the world?

And what will be my

Contribution?”

 

First of all, I don’t think

Anyone is going to

Change the world,

Not really.  Obviously,

 

The world has changed

In some ways, some

People say for the better.

I think we can do more.

 

I think we can live longer.

But are we more loving?

Do we forgive others more?

Do we have more faith, hope?

 

No, I don’t think so.

And I don’t think that any

Individual or group is going

To change that.  Inside,

 

We have always been the same,

And we will always be the same.

And I certainly don’t think

Anything I do is going to change that.

And I think it is inside

That really matters.

I don’t think science

Is of everlasting importance.

 

I don’t think the study of history,

Or sociology, or psychology,

Or math, or English, or

Anything else, is going to

 

Change anything

About the world

That really matters,

At least to me.
