Am I a fool?
To believe that I could make a change?
To be the difference?
To try to save the world?
After all,
I am only just a girl,
A small grain of rice in the paddy,
And the world’s hunger is unbearable.
Could I really feed the world?
Would my aide make the difference?
Where would I find the beginning?
Is there even an end?
The answer?
No,
No,
No,
No,
No,
No,
No,
No,
No.
Only are you a fool,
If you think there is nothing to be done,
And sit while others take on what you,
Were too foolish to believe couldn’t be done.

Love this! Love the repetition of the NO. For me, it reminded me of my conscience when I know I'm giving myself the wrong answer to a question. It bothers me until I change it.. : ) (Like a drumbeat) .. You've got great technique, girl! Reading on!
