Day 156 continued



I convince not with words

arguments mean little to those

who overuse them greatly


I convince not with similes

They confuse those  who cannot

stimulate thoughts with songs


I convince only with action

Plaintive and ordinary acts

speak louder and clearer to the soul


changing the world entails work

better still to first change your mind

The worlds of perception guides furtive change


miracles are occurring regularly

exactly within every instant

For all change is a miracle to contemplate


overuse of words leaves the listener parched

overuse of arguments leaves the hearer upset

It is more wise to convince, if you must convince, with actions.
