Everyone Has the Answer








you can’t know what’s in a person’s mind

buried under the quiet, looking out from those eyes

so please stop being sure of yourself

preaching out of anger, reaching out from pain

don’t use tragedy to further your agenda

grieve in genuine sadness, shed tears from the heart

make the world a better place by loving those close to you

instead of lashing out

before you speak retribution, take a deep breath

hug someone.

your smile will improve the world more than public vitriol.
