The Answer

May 9, 2013

The answer isn’t
At the bottom of the bottle.
It isn’t
Under the mountains of food.
It isn’t
Behind those dumbbells at the gym.
The answer isn’t
Cashed with that big check.
It isn’t
Found on your friend’s wall.
It isn’t
In the holy scriptures.
The answer is
Within us all.
It just needs
Each and everyone of us
To cease to hurt
Cease to hate
Cease to destroy
Cease to pity
And cease to demean.
It just takes one.
