What good is knowledge if it moves no one to action
The spouting of words and details that leave one wondering
Saving the words preserving the truth holds little value
without real life application and motivation for change
What good is rhetoric, going on and on, yet going nowhere
Outlining, detailing facts that leave us in confused limbo
Futuristic admonitions that leave us wondering, “So what?”
A lifeless dust storm of theories full of gritty residue
What good is history if we never learn from it
Generations cycling through life like hamsters in a cage
Looking back but never seeing, listening but never hearing
Doomed to repeat what we vowed would never happen again
Are the answers simply blowing in the winds of change?
Is change just one step forward and two steps back?
