Change the World
What is life in the great ocean of eternity,
In the timeframe of creation,
It is like the grain of sand in the desert,
Or beaches by the sea
Yet that grain of sand when
Entering an oyster can produce a pearl of great price.
It is like the blade of grass rippling in the wind
Or the droplet of water in the huge ocean,
It seems like you are nothing
Life is pointless
You make little difference
But this is not so
One seed can grow and grow and grow
It will spread to others which then spread to others and so forth,
One droplet of water can bring life to one plant,
We may feel by comparison to others or creation we are nothing
Our planet in the vastness of the universe also
Yet it is not and we are not!
Your life makes a difference
You are not an island
You are connected to humanity
To the rest of the world
Every action you take
Affects in some way something around you
Good or bad!
Your choices, your decisions, everything you do
Affects the future,
Yours and others,
There is nothing you do that is insignificant!
You are writing the future,
You are carving your destiny with each word and deed.
Every choice you make affects someone
They affect someone
So on, so on,
The ripple affect they say!
Your bad mood rubs off on others
Your smiling face brings joy,
Your curt words or loving words,
To build up or destroy
Every minute of every day
We are changing this world we live in
Our interaction affecting others around us,
Every action has its reaction, as science clearly shows.
How are you changing the world?
What stamp are you making on the scope of eternity
What painting of life; mosaic, or tapestry
Are you creating with you choices and actions?
Long after you have gone and left this world
The seeds of your life continue to grow bloom
They will affect others,
There is nothing,
Yes, nothing, too small, or seemingly insignificant in life,
No, I say to you that your life is not insignificant,
You reach far more than you can ever imagine!
You can change the world
You are changing the world!
You are a world changer
Act like it!
