“The apple doesn't fall far from the tree." I guess that means we're just products of whoever made us and we don't have much control. The thing is, when people use that phrase, they ignore the most critical part: the falling. Within the logic of that saying, the apple falls every single time. Not falling isn't an option. So, if the apple has to fall, the most important question in my mind is what happens to it upon hitting the ground? Does it touch down with barely a scratch? Or does it smash on impact? Two vastly different fates. When you think about it, who cares about its proximity to the tree or what type of tree spawned it? What really makes all the difference, then, is how we land.”

What is needed

To run the world

The people?

The light?

A god above guiding so bright?

Curious indeed

This quiet philosophy

That you need more

Then the human breed

As long as you

Are the seed

That the world

Wants to need

The total deal

The ultimate thneed

Not made from greed

Just created with truth

And hopeful from the worst of times

I challenge you

To run the world

Run it well

And run for all

Who hope and pray

That they wont fall.

We all dreamed of running the world as a kid, so I decided to think about what it takes to do such a crazy thing.
