You can’t make
someone see
what they don’t
wish to see,
or teach them
a melody they’ve
no use to play.

But you can
be the change
you wish to see,
and you can
generously cast your
pebbles of kindness-
with all your might
into the pond,
so they can’t help
but leave ripples.

And you can
keep on loving
for all your worth
and remember:

Any real change
doesn’t begin with
opening the eyes,
it begins with
opening the heart.
