IF

IF

A Poem by Sagela
"

This is up for your own interpretation

"

If you could change the world,

Would you?

How about just the poor?

The rich?

How about in between?

No?

What about the industry,

Of cars and trains

Streets and Sidewalks?

No?

What about nature?

Would you make it take over?

Or will you destroy it?

What did you say?

Too many decisions?

That is why you are but a human

You cannot make these decisions,

So do not judge Me and the decisions I make.

Opinion is a matter of perspective

This is a controversial poem and I seem to love it, and feel for you. for me, decisions are things I like to avoid for a reason. They can alter and change the consciousness of today and tomorrow. It's kind of crazy. And I don't know if I would change things or not...

I don't think I would change anything... things are what they are. its as if the creator is saying "if you think you could do better then go ahead and critique me but this is my job and I don't you how to do yours "so do not judge Me and the decisions I make."

I loved how your words work on several levels. You challenge us to consider what we might do to make the world better, and then you turn to help us realize how vital it is not to place judgement on others. This may be the first step to making a better world... Thank you!
