I may not can change the world
But I can make a difference in one
Person's life
When I see a lost little boy I can
Wipe his tears
Help him find his way home

I may not can change the world
But I can make it better for
Someone in need. I can go to a
Nursing home or hospital..read to
The elderly...hold their hand..make
Them smile

I may not can change the world..but
I can bring a hot meal to my neighbor
Who is sick and can't cook. I can bring
Flowers to a lonely widow...and hope
To the sick and depressed. I can give
A smile if I cannot give anything else

I may not can change the world..but
I can bring a teddy bear to a small Child
Who's crying and alone. I can read them
a story and hug them. It may be the only
hug they have all day..or all week
Some times
Their eyes light up with just a gentle hug.

I may not can change the world...but I
Can still salute our great flag...pray For our
Soldiers...and our land. I can work now To
Make things better for our children and
Their children. I can teach them to Love
Not hate their fellowmen. That we are All equal

I may not can change the world..but I Can
Do my part. If everyone marches to the Same
Drum....not to their own beat...then we Can
Change the world. If everyone can give LOVE..
And have COMPASSION and GENTLENESS..
YES, we can change the world...TOGETHER...

I think that one person can make for change, at least in private, individual ways, it is when we all expect everyone to march to that dame drum roll that complications and innovative compassion suffer. Loved the poem.

Powerful message Linda! I know that
if everyone had your heart we wouldn't
have the problems we do. TY

Everything You Write Makes Change_

While Some May Praise You Linda, Majority Could Give Good Shit Less_

Never Stop Writing When You Do (God) Will Let Go Of Your Hand As He Has Literally Millions Upon Millions Who Sit By Idle Watching Little Children Destroyed,i.e. TALK IS CHEAP!!!

Compassion Is Deep In Your Heart, Most Humanity Does Not Know Meaning Of Word As They Have No Conscience--Only There Own Inequities,i.e. SELF CENTERED GREED!

Hi Linda
This fills my buckets -- was looking for birds of a feather
when I wrote "If I could. . . My Sacred Wish." Clearly there are many of us who are living from this space--sometimes I feel like its
partly a matter of realizing there are many more of us than it
"seems." Thanks much, Vicky

You have such a compassionate and kind heart, Linda. I have always believed that banded together, we can make a difference. I can only pray that one day, my philosophy is proven correct. This was a beautiful write, my dear.
