“Ellipsism: a sadness that you’ll never be able to know how history will turn out” – John Koenig’s Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows
I told the world things would change

I told the world I could fix their problems

I told the world to step back and watch

Reality

What can I control?

I can’t control the wind spreading fires

I can’t control people spreading ignorant hate

I can’t control people lying

Hope

I can build a structure out of stone

I can treat people with kindness and love

I can speak the truth and shine spotlight on those who don’t

We never know if what we build will stand for centuries

Or

Be torn down as soon as we fade away

But all we can do is plan for the future

Do what is good

Do what is kind

Do what is right

Selfishness is fruitless

It leads to war
