Change the world...

When I was young, I wanted to change the world, but it was too big to take on myself.

As I grew to adulthood, I decided to change my country, but still, it was more than I could handle.

As I matured, I thought to change my town, but alone, I thought I could do nothing.

When I became old, I decided to change my family, but that, too, was too much more than I could do by myself.

Now I am dying, and I see, that I had only to change myself.

For in changing myself, I could change my family.

In changing my family, I could change my town.

In changing my town, I could change my country.

In changing my country, I could have changed the world.

(Time to change, folks.)
