How I'll Change the World

November 21, 2010
I want to do something powerful. Something to change the world. I want to take all of your pain. Not just from your heart and soul, from your fingertips too. I want to rip a hole in the earth and bury it. Bury it so deep that we never have to look at it again. Like a seed it will grow roots, sprout, and bear the fruits of loneliness and despair. Ill pick them. Ill eat them. Maybe through me, maybe through what I can do, we can be happy again.
