Don’t Try To Save The Whole World

William Hawkins

The point is, it is not what you want from life but what life wants from you.

— Victor Frankl

*

Do not try to save the whole world
or do anything grandiose.
Instead, create a clearing in the dense forest of your life
and wait there patiently,
until the song that is your life
falls into your own cupped hands
and you recognize and greet it.
