Change



We try to correct with fiction
the misarrangements of the world,
and sometimes it works,
but the world has so many ways to go wrong!
It's not change that one should fear
but the wrong thing that stays the same.
If your heart is good, use your heart.
If your brain is good, use your brain.
If both are lacking,
follow the lead of those strong in one or the other.
It is not your fault that you can't love better.
But you are entirely to blame when you don't try harder.
Only change is real;
only the one who changes is true.
