Oh, the want⁣⁣⁣
To save the world⁣⁣⁣
To make a mark⁣⁣⁣
To leave it all ⁣⁣⁣
Better than it was.⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
Now,
A little self-reflection⁣⁣⁣
On what constantly tugs and begs this:
⁣⁣⁣
To have an idea that feels so true⁣⁣⁣
May exist most importantly for you.
⁣⁣⁣
I see…⁣⁣⁣
What the world needs⁣⁣⁣
Is that thing most true for me⁣⁣⁣
To reignite the kindling⁣⁣⁣
And grow the flame for all to see⁣⁣⁣
The wonder deep, deep⁣⁣⁣
Inside of me.⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
Perhaps…⁣⁣⁣
The world is but a mirror⁣⁣⁣
And I, too, for it⁣⁣⁣
With everything connected⁣⁣⁣
And nothing truly separate⁣⁣⁣
When I see a lacking⁣⁣⁣
All across the horizon⁣⁣⁣
I simply peer within⁣⁣⁣
And there, lacking, find it.⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
Wonder! ⁣⁣⁣
Awaken!⁣⁣⁣
Stir within, that magic brew⁣⁣⁣
Each moment, singing, beckons you⁣⁣⁣
Every second brimming full⁣⁣⁣
With nothing near predictable⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
All of it ever-passing⁣⁣⁣
All the bliss and all the pain⁣⁣⁣
In each high and low exists⁣⁣⁣
Immeasurable gifts to be gained⁣⁣⁣
If you only keep your noggin
Lifted to meet its gaze.⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
A note to self:⁣⁣⁣
Never clutter or close your mind⁣⁣⁣
But look up, down, left, and right⁣⁣⁣
Present⁣⁣⁣
To beauty in all things⁣⁣⁣
As they are drifting,
Ever-shifting,⁣⁣⁣
Passing,⁣⁣⁣
Changing.⁣⁣⁣
