There is so much you can do with words. You can enlighten, uplift, inspire. Make someone smile. You can encourage, empathize, sympathize. Make someone feel loved. You can discuss, elaborate, philosophize. Make someone think. You can create, imagine, express. Make someone dream. There is power in words. You can make someone overcome.
I had forgotten what it was like to hear the laughter of children, to see the innocence in their eyes, to feel the wonder, their energy and relentless optimism, the anticipation of fun & games, and ice cream on a hot summer night. And then you came into my life and reminded me that it’s never too late to hope.
Why is it that the kind of harmony found in nature is hard to achieve among humans? Would it be so difficult to be at peace like the tree is to the flower, the sky to the grass, the sun to the earth? Would it take much effort to stop arguing and just listen to the sound of silence? Would it be inconceivable to end senseless violence and practice kindness? I don’t know the answers, but all I can do is spread a seed and hope that it blooms into awareness.
