Apologies to Gandhi

Too big to hold

too hard to grasp

too difficult to comprehend

too frightening to imagine

too loud to hear

drowning in the world

engulfed by too much

too much, too much, too much, too much

Too much materialism

too much capitalism

too much greed

Too much need

too much violence

too much fear

too much arrogance

too much authority

Too much relativism, too much fundamentalism.

Starving in the midst of plenty

lonely amongst many.

There is enough for the world’s need but not for its greed.
