Better Than My Words

Journal: February 2014

a drop or two by James Ehrets

They say to Change the world
you must first Change yourself
What a convenient lie.
Change: a concept free from subjection
one can deny it; laugh in Change’s face
mould the world and everything in it
out of audacious determination
Then there is the other type
parched beyond belief,
they keep their feet far from
the flowing river out of the fear
of being washed away just
like the ever-so many condemned before
they spend fruitless generations
searching elsewhere for
what has been in front
of them the whole time;
What they are truly waiting for
is  for the one who jumps in.
they stand near, clinging
to the desperate hope that
they may get splashed with
a drop or two

Thanks for entering my world,
