Need To Know

What do you need to know
What kingdoms yet
To overthrow?
And why such speed?
The world is slow
It’s all you need to know

How can you start to care?
Your followers are
Waiting there
Can you save hope
Or quell despair
If you just start to care?

What do you need to change?
All of our dreams
Are re-arranged
And we get nothing
In exchange
Just only what can change

What do you need to know?
Belief is just
A body blow
But out of rain
The flowers grow
It’s all you need to know

Like most people, I have a number of sides to me. The most interesting one probably emerges through my writing, hence this blog. I love to read, and also to write, and so this is a way to share both.

    Loved that. The nature of life. With every tear drop, we learn and grow.
