We should all try!

I found a poem that I had written a while ago and thought that it went with this digital painting that I’ve just completed.

home coming

I try to understand this world that we live in

I try to comprehend what I’m feeling so deeply within

I try to understand why negativity is breeding

I try to understand why greed for the material is feeding.

🌹

I try to be positive when the rest of the world is crying

I try to understand why people are ill and why they are dying

I try to bring peace to others in their time of need

I try to not let those dark feelings inside me succeed.

🌹

I try to find forgiveness to my fellow human beings

I try to make them feel compassion and be all-seeing

I try to show them the beauty of the world that we live in

I try to point out that they should be dancing and singing.

🌹

I try to bring happiness and joy to those of us who need it

I try to dispel their sadness by helping them not to feed it

I try to bring joy and laughter in the small things I do

I try hard to explain things, then it is all down to you

🌹

It is down to every individual person in the world to make changes within themselves to make our world a better place to live in. We can’t change everyone else but we can change ourselves.
