What would I change?


The very way of thinking that has become accepted as human nature.

We are born as peaceful and loving,

But we grow up to be violent and greedy?

We claim violence is our nature. We claim greed is our soul.

We would do well to remember we are born into this world with only the ability to love.

We claim showing violence and greed is only being human.

This justification has led to so much suffering and pain.

So, if I could change anything,

I would change the world.
