I dreamt the world could be a better place.... but for every bit of love there's a bit of hate....

A Step Away From Greed: Part 1 (spoken word poetry)

I dreamt the world could be a better place,

I dreamt the world could be a better place, But for every bit of love there's a bit of hate

I dreamt the world could be a better place, But for every bit of love there's a bit of hate For every inch of pride there're times you'll deflate.

Have you no shame?

Each word you speak, each step that you'll take

Each word you speak, each step that you'll take Every selfish brick along the road you pave

Each word you speak, each step that you'll take Every selfish brick along the road you pave How good is the world you'll make?

Each word you speak, each step that you'll take Every selfish brick along the road you pave How good is the world you'll make? Good to you,

Each word you speak, each step that you'll take Every selfish brick along the road you pave How good is the world you'll make? Good to you, because every dream and hope

Each word you speak, each step that you'll take Every selfish brick along the road you pave How good is the world you'll make? Good to you, because every dream and hope is what will help you best

But for everything you do have,

But for everything you do have, there are people who have less.

Leigh Bardugo once said,

Leigh Bardugo once said, "What is infinite?

Leigh Bardugo once said, "What is infinite? The universe and the greed of mankind"

Leigh Bardugo once said, "What is infinite? The universe and the greed of mankind" As if those who were selfless left this world behind.

Leigh Bardugo once said, "What is infinite? The universe and the greed of mankind" As if those who were selfless left this world behind. A vast world indeed,

Leigh Bardugo once said, "What is infinite? The universe and the greed of mankind" As if those who were selfless left this world behind. A vast world indeed, one with much to claim

Leigh Bardugo once said, "What is infinite? The universe and the greed of mankind" As if those who were selfless left this world behind. A vast world indeed, one with much to claim But what does the wind of human nature whisper?

Not the world's name.

No, it whispers yours.

No, it whispers yours. It whispers mountains of gold and pools of greed,

No, it whispers yours. It whispers mountains of gold and pools of greed, Whatever is there,

No, it whispers yours. It whispers mountains of gold and pools of greed, Whatever is there, that's what you'll need.

No, it whispers yours. It whispers mountains of gold and pools of greed, Whatever is there, that's what you'll need. But it also whispers shame

As if you know there's nowhere to place the blame

As if you know there's nowhere to place the blame But inwards.

Because your actions are your own and your greed is yourself

Because your actions are your own and your greed is yourself And the need for something more is a part of mankind's spell

Because your actions are your own and your greed is yourself And the need for something more is a part of mankind's spell And the dust that coats the covers of every book on the shelf

Could be blown away by a passing breeze...

Could be blown away by a passing breeze... But the windows are locked tight in this airless library

Could be blown away by a passing breeze... But the windows are locked tight in this airless library Where each one of us is a word on a page that none will read

Could be blown away by a passing breeze... But the windows are locked tight in this airless library Where each one of us is a word on a page that none will read The dust will soon collect,

Could be blown away by a passing breeze... But the windows are locked tight in this airless library Where each one of us is a word on a page that none will read The dust will soon collect, books rip and ink fades,

That's our greed.

TO BE CONTINUED ON MARCH 24TH!
