It could be you who has the thought
that something needs to change.
It could be you with just your thoughts
who starts to rearrange
the fibers of the fabric that make up our social cloth ~
the pieces of the picture from the story that was taught.
And, it's never who or what you know
that gives you what you need
to change a mind, to make a point,
to stifle useless greed.
It's all about the gentle push
you give folks with your gift ~
the way you shape the tidal flow
and cause the upward lift ~
that encourages and guides them
to an unexpected view ~
and starts a grassroots movement.
That leader could be you.
-- Conrad Link, May 1995
