Be the change you want to see in the world.


I'll sit here, stare ,
at that clock- on the wall.
I'll watch that hand,
tick, tock, tick, tock.
Running.
Oh, I'm running.
Tick.
Out of-
Tock.
Time.
I'm searching,
Seeking.
Tick.
Searching for that answer.
The one thing
that will make it-
Tock.
-okay.
Tick.
Tock.
Why?! Why is the world
one big question?!
Tick.
Is the answer even here?
(another question)
I've searched the-
Tock.
-depths of the ocean.
The sky.
And it's not there.
Tick.
Maybe the answer isn't
real.
(am I real?)
Tock.
Or maybe the answer
is inside
us )?(
Tick.
It would help to know.
What if,
we searched
(TOGETHER)
-- would we find it?
Together?
Tock.
Maybe thats the
answer.
Together.
Let's try it.
Tick.
Hurry.
Tock.
We're running-
Tick.
-Out of-
Tock.
-Time-
Tick.
!
Tock.

Done.
