Quietly I watch as the world revolves
So many seem unhappy with their lives
Talking about life's cruelties
It's unfairness, sadness, and strifes

I guess I look differently at things then most
I know not all clouds have a silver linings
I believe that with time all things can change
And I don't believe good comes from whining

But I sit and listen with an open mind
Not judging those that complain
Their venting seems to make them feel better
And their choices they need not explain

Looking at something with different eyes
Solutions seem so simple from another's mind
So caught up blaming others, they fail to see
If they took time and listened, their answers be freed

------- Author's Notes -------

In the Immortal words of Micheal Jackson:
"If you wanna make the world a better place, take a look at yourself then make a change."

Just wanted to let you know that the poem is so true and wonderful...

"I'm only laughing on the outside
My smile is only skin deep
If you could see inside I'm only crying
You might join me for a weep."
