We have the freedom
To choose differently;
To train diligently;
To change our world;
By changing ourselves.

Or we can try and stay the same,
Until our world grows dark,
Behind the dusty curtain of our eyes.

    Personally, I don’t know if I’ll ever escape from the last stanza. Hope can be so difficult. Wonderfully written, thank you.

    You do have some zen in your pen.

    That’s the beauty and heavy duty of life, I agree – that the choice is ours (although we have no choice ;-)).

    Mainstream is not the way to go. Well said. We need more people to be unique and step out of the comfort zone that many seem to accept.

    All you write is so simple, and with such depth.
    No wonder it’s Zen.

    In love, with all your work.
    Think i’d read it slowly and steadily, so i can absorb it too.
