"People believe that if we really want to eliminate something, focus on that. How much sense does it make for us to give the particular problem all of the energy, as opposed to focusing on trust, love, living in abundance, education, or peace? -Un.

One may say:
The world is inside of me,
It's my best friend.
But it's not today...
We take advantage,
Of what we have.
We mess around,
We've burned it down.
It's a hundred leaves,
Falling off the trees.
And as they flutter down,
To their grave.
They begin to wonder --
Can I be saved?

The author's comments:
I feel as if people pretend to care, until they notice the real problems in our world. But by the time they do -- it's too late.
