What You Cannot Change - Poem by Norman Mukwakwami

Tis not that what you can change
Rather tis what you cannot,
That matters most.

The graves scattered across the battlefield,
Long after the guns have rusted.
Long after the peace treaties have yellowed with age.

    very unique perspective
    on the most important of philosophical questions.
    a concise analysis
