One day xenophobia
will begin to rust.
People will smile
and help each other
And fall about in lust.
They’ll make the world a better place
Solve every problem — just
And hate and war
I believe a person’s life is like a stone thrown into a pond. It generates ripples.
Those ripples can be a force for good
Or they can be a force for evil.
We swim in the ripples we all create.
Some people’s lives barely brush the surface
While others generate huge tidal waves that sweep history along
If there are enough of us our waves build together in harmony.
I aim to make as many ripples as I can with my short life
My waves may be small but they lap out against everyone and spark other ripples
They can become as big as tsunamis and carry all before them
Our ripples build the zeitgeist in which we all are formed;
All of us are moulded but
Some help form the mould.
Together we can change the world for the better.
Here – I throw another pebble in.
See the ripples spread?
Here – share my pebbles.
