Giving It Up for Lost

So much time spent worrying about the world. The injustice. The wars. The prejudice. And though I can’t help but speak out I have to let go. I can’t save the world so I’m giving it up for lost all the while I try to help who I can and cultivate my own heart. 

May we make islands of ourselves and strive on until liberation.

  1. We save the world by being a living example of the change we want to see in others.

    Also headsup for a typo. You wrote do instead of so.

    • Thanks. Darn autocorrect.

      • Yeah, it does that haha.
