What I Can Be - Poem by Tim Caffery

If 'normal' is conform like the dictionary states
Is diversity a subject a bit too outta place
Say 'govern' is to rule when we seek freedom
Does it contradict to claim we really need them
What if democracy crumbled Greece
Has it transformed enough to make peace
And war? And war? And war? And war?
Does it mean less or does it mean more
The dogma 'own' is above 'the date'
Question this line and challenge fate
Property first at the expense of ration
Change the rules to meets assassins
Jesus, Abe and Gandhi tried
Makiguchi, JFK and X died
King did his best and Bobby did too
But what, but what, but what can I do
Have I learned to be so small
Have I learned anything at all
Do I foster hate that fosters violence
Do I watch massacres in unaffected silence
I can't change the planet without changing me
But do I know what I can be
