How do I

I ponder.
I wonder.

How do I live for money, 
while millions are dying for it?

How do I appreciate life, 
while it's devoured every night for dinner?

How do I keep driving, 
while empty bellies are filled with pollution at every robot?

How do I make way for the mainstream, 
while society is already drowning in it?

How do I feel comfortable in my own skin, 
when so many have been persecuted for the colour of theirs?

How do I distract myself in churches and conference rooms, 
while the earth is crumbling under these structures?

How do I live, 
when "that's life"?

I ponder.
I wonder.

    Karma is the answer. We all experience the other side of the coin in another life, if not already! Its all part of our souls plan

    Thanks Gareth, I wish that more people were able to see, feel and think that. :)
