Engage to Change

no retreat

always engage

if not

what’s the point?



we all change the world

everyday

you must choose

construct or destruct



reject isolationism

embrace the world

engage if not change

all grains of sand have value



do right to them

while hanging in the balance

of the reality of life

when you turn and look back

what do you see?



what good am I

if I retreat from reality

ignoring your pain

turning my back while you die



what qualities do we espouse?

most of the time

some of the time
