When I first read this poem I thought,” So what?” Now after reading the poem three or four times, I get the meaning. This poem isn’t about going beyond what can create world peace, and satisfy everybody, but how the little things in life satisfy ourselves. If we all satisfy ourselves then we would not worry about what others do and only worry about yourself. I love this poem and I will think about how you motivated me and probably millions of others. I think what really made this poem was the reference at the end to Archimedes. This reference basically summarized the poem and the message you were trying to get through to the people.
