The World Beyond

Poem by: Beautiful Simplicity

Summary

I admit it; I can be selfish sometimes. I spend so much time thinking about myself, looking at my own reflection, writing about myself, and sometimes I fail to see the big picture. I fail to see the world beyond.

When I sit down and write

I'm always writing about myself -

For myself

 

Writing helps me sort out my feelings,

But what I sometimes forget,

Is that it doesn't always have to be about me

 

The world is huge!

There's problems,

There's issues,

Everywhere you turn

 

There's hunger in Africa,

Genocide in the Sudan,

Forced prostitution in India,

Suicide bombings in the Middle East

 

There's people all over the place,

Who need healing,

Need help,

Need comfort,

Or grace

 

Thinking this way

Makes me want to get up

Out of my comfort zone,

To do something,

Anything!

 

I want to help someone else

Besides just...

 

Myself
