When

When the volume of anger rises,

The art of reasoning tapers,

When the volume of greed rises,

The art of simplicity tapers,

When the volume of resources rises,

The art of self-help tapers,

When the volume of wealth rises,

The art of sharing tapers,

Isn’t it better?

When the volume of kindness rises,

The cause of accusation tapers,

When the volume of understanding rises,

The cause of conflict tapers,

When the volume of knowledge rises,

The cause of ignorance tapers,

When the volume of humanity rises,

The cause of war tapers.

Volume

Taper

World Of Words

The flowers of the fiction plant rooted in my brain, the voice of the inexpressible feelings hidden in my heart and the eruption of the theories burning in my mindโ€“ I made a ball out of the three, threw it high into the sky and it landed right at my blog.
