imagination had no limits,
I dreamed of changing the world.
As i grew older and wiser, I discovered the
world would not change, so I shortened my sights
somewhat and decide to change only my country.
But it too,seemed immovable.
As i grew into my twilight years, in one
last desperate attempt, I settled for changing
only my family, those closest to me;
but alas, they would have none of it.
And now as I lie on my death bed, I suddenly
realize: if only I had changed myself first,
then by example I would have changed my family.
From their inspiration and encouragement,
I would then have been able to better my country
and, who knows, I may have even
changed the world.
