More than once I've heard it said
that actions outdo words
so why are we so prone to tread
on verbal battlefields?
The world looks out for peace
in fact, it's a constant battle
never mind the contradiction
using weapons of uninformed prattle.
While we wait around for change
and fight with idle words
the impact has a narrow range
and bleeding hearts lose sympathy.
With actions life progresses
like marching into war
getting dirt under your fingernails
be the change you want to see in the world.
