    To Change the World


    Can one person change the world?
    Can one simple idea?
    Real change can never be measured
    never even be known
    for once known, no longer is it change!

    There are those on this world
    who bring about such change,
    who live simplicity in joy:
    quiet, steady as the stars
    in the night sky – points of light
    shining bright, not to themselves;

    There are those whose heart
    is vast and open as the ocean;
    of gentle word and soft mien,
    a haven for those who hurt.

    There are those whose soul
    is like a mountain ringed with clouds:
    whose thoughts are noble and wise;
    who have the spirit of an eagle;
    who remain graceful and free
    in the face of all adversity

    You will not find them in the temples
    nor in the high places of power;
    their faces do not grace the TV screen,
    or fill pages in magazines.
    Lucky are you to recognize one,
    wise are you to emulate one.

    this is peace

    in it's entirety....

    summed up so wonderfully Windwalker:

    "You will not find them in the temples
    nor in the high places of power;
    their faces do not grace the TV screen,
    or fill pages in magazines.
    Lucky are you to recognize one,
    wise are you to emulate one."



    I second these emotions....

    thank you

    a

    such beautiful words..
    which bring peace, understanding and truth...
    these are the ones who, as you say, shine but not on themselves, instead they walk quietly through the shadows of life..

    WindWalker:

    Your poetry is like wind on the water
    sometimes gently rolling it along
    sometimes forcing it to shore
    but always moving
    always powerful!

    Thank You,

    JNubian
