When I was young and free my imagination had no limits, I dreamed I could change the world.
As I grew older and wiser, I realised the world would not change. And I decided to shorten my sights somewhat and change only my country. But it seemed immovable.
As I entered my twighlight 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 in my death bed and realise, perhaps for the first time, that if only I had changed myself 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.
