Thoughts On Revolution.... - Poem by Eric Cockrell

you speak angrily of revolution,
yet you're in such a hurry, that
you havent sat down and thought
about what it is you want...
so many issues you're mad about,
but you dont have answers to the
problems... you're not even sure
about what you think caused the
problems.
it's easy to want change, it's hard
to do the work of change... it begins
with knowing who you are as a human being,
seeing your strengths and weaknesses,
and acknowledging, accepting...
in order to change the world we have
to first be willing to change ourselves...
what we have to change in ourselves
begins with our excuses... we have to
turn from our old selfish images of
ourselves, to a real and honest knowing...
the things we want to change in our world
have been inflicted by man... to change the
works of man.... we have to be the man and
woman that we are called to be.
honest, real, caring, involved... willing
to educate ourselves to the truth....
