Be The Change

When we look at the world,
Do we like what we see?
Do we think about others
Or think about "me"?

Do we take without giving
And consume what we must,
Ever heeding the motto:
"In consumption we trust"?

If we stopped for a moment
And thought about 'how'
We could make our world better
Beginning with 'now'.

We might realize we share
So much more than divides us:
Letting hope, faith and love
Be the gifts that inspire us.
