On Changing the World

What is it exactly
That you want to change?
What exactly is missing?
Sometimes we imagine
What we would do
If we ever got the power
If we ever got the opportunity
If we ever got a go at the wheel-
How things would be better
How we’d finally be happy.
Changing the world
May not look like
What we expected,
And maybe being in charge
Won’t be all that we imagined,
Maybe all the stuff that
Drove us crazy,
The stuff we so desperately
Wanted to change
Will finally make sense.
We may just come to find
That it’s not just the world
That’s in need of change-
We ourselves are in need
of it too.
