I look out at the world
through eyes full of stars,
seeking the good and the beautiful.
I am not blind;
I see the pain, the fear, and the anger;
hearts frozen, minds closed,
for the world forever tilts in a balancing act of light and dark.
I get to choose, though;
fall into darkness
or reach toward the light.
There was never any question for me;
one small thought and deed at a time
we can heal the world.
