Intrinsic Value

Though it may be true
great societal change has never been performed
by content hands
Much beauty and many wonders of this Earth
have been captured and preserved
by those who loved what they already possessed.

The capacity to appreciate what is good
among all that is wrong
is a great gift to bequeath future generations
For as they strive to change
they may do so with the hope and confidence
such wisdom imparts.
