“Learn to light a candle in the darkest moments of someone’s life. Be the light that helps others see; it is what gives life its deepest significance.” – Roy T. Bennet

Japan

Life can overwhelm

All the different faces

The critiques that come with them

And the ever-changing smiles

The mindsets of millions

The styles of billions

Up and down

Like a rollercoaster

And we are just spinning in circles

Anyway

But we thrive

Fashions come and go

Some should never have come

Our cars get bigger and better

Our minds get smaller and smaller

Or so it seems

We eat

A lot

The food never stops coming

And when disasters do

What??

We lose sight of hope?

Of pity?

Of peace?

The screens are watched

The people panic

But from over here

It’s a thought

In the back of your head

Sometimes you remember to pray

Sometimes you forget

There are others out there

Beyond a haircut

Beyond a music video

Crying like children

Some of them are children

A wall is being built

A tall one

Of loving people

Of helpers

Of those who care

Whether we join them or not

That’s our choice

What do you choose?
