Time

They said,
“Change all that you desire
But make yours better first
Be and then build”

I looked them in the eye
So blinded by ‘money’
their vision of life
end to every misery

I might quit everything
and change my situation
become something people yearn
earn and be in luxury

But would that money,
that free time
bring back the child
famished?

Would that cure wounds
the stray dog died of?
Would it bring smile on face
the child that sought help?

Building future was phenomenal
but, somewhere living in future
they asked me to overlook
the destruction that happened today!
