When I was young and free
and my imaginations had no limits,
I dreamed of changing the world.
As I grew older and wiser
I realized the world would not change.
And I decided to shorten my sights somewhat
and change only my country,
but it too seemed immovable.
As I entered my twilight years,
in one last desperate attempt,
I sought to change only my family,
those closest to me,
but at last they would have none of it.
And now here I lie on my death bed
and realize (perhaps the first time)
that if only I’d changed myself first,
then by example I may have influenced my family
and with their encouragement and support,
I may have bettered my country,
and who knows I may have changed the world.
