When You Are Ready, The World Will Change

You keep creating distractions,
Then wonder about focus.
You keep building up walls,
And then point out the divide.

You keep longing for truth,
While creating the lies.
You keep striving for justice,
While committing the crime.

You keep saying you’re lonely,
Then push all away.
You keep saying you’re scared,
While creating the fear.

You keep searching for heaven,
While making the hell.
You keep crying about illness,
While not living the truth.

You keep grasping for straw men,
And blame them for failing.
You create the wrongness of others,
Just to pretend you are right.

When you can see all these mistakes,
As human perfection,
When you see angels above
As the one next to you.
When you see heaven among you
As the cravings are calling,
When you find nature within you,
And find simple truth.

You are ready, and the world will change.

When you can help out your brother,
Regardless of judgment,
When you can hold out your hand,
As your mind is in pain,
When you can forgive what is evil,
As the bombs are falling,
When you can stop all pollution,
Without destroying yourself.

Then you are ready, and the world will change.
