Day winding down
A lone bird cry pierces the quiet
I am thinking about the need
for change, inside and out

The world is in peril, there is no doubt
But if we don't clean up our own act, there is little
we can do beyond our shores

We must look within to figure out
the source of our own anger

Then deal with it, make some changes
or say your peace without inflicting pain
on others

Hey Patrick,

I so recognised the lone bird cry piercing the quiet. My favourite line.

As for make some changes and say your peace. Expressing ourselves without aggression still does not stop people receiving our messages and not hurt them. But expressing ourselves and getting our message across is our main ambition, if that hinders others, really we cant be responsible with that.

The best we can hope for is expression that leads to growth and development. If we were watching everyone else's feeling I don't believe we would be saying it the way we individually do. But that is just my opinion.

Thanks for a great poem.
