What difference can one person make?

When compared to the cosmos-

Incomprehensibly infinite-

We are all specks of dust

And one word, one action

Doesn’t seem to matter at all.

What difference can one person make?

We’re forever tied down

By our own expectations

And making a difference in our own lives,

Breaking habits, making dreams,

Doesn’t seem to be possible at all.

But the difference between

What we ask ourselves

And what we should be asking

Is all the difference in the world.

Anyone can change a heart with a word,

A mood with a smile,

A life with a friendship.

Maybe the question shouldn’t be

What difference can one person make,

But rather, 

What difference can I make, 

Right now,

In someone else’s world?

What difference can one person make?

They can change a life

One word at a time

And I hope

I made a difference

To you.
