When I was young and free and my imagination had no limits, I dreamed of changing the world;
As l grew older and wiser I realized the world would not change.
And I decided to shorten my sights somewhat and change only my country.
But it too seemed immovable.
As I entered my twilight years, In one last desperate attempt, I sought to change only my family, those closest to me,but alas they would have none of it.
And now here I lie on my death bed and realize(perhaps for the first time) that if only I'd changed my self first, then by example I may have influenced my family and with their encouragement and support I may have bettered my country, and who knows I may have changed the world.
