A Better World
We’re always trying to make the world a little better.
Anytime we find ourselves someplace that seems
Just a little off, the faintest whiff of a sad vibe,
I do this thing where I get down on a knee
And propose to you
Right there in front of everyone.
Nobody knows the truth
But it always seems to lift the mood,
Softens some faces the way
Spontaneous gestures and actions
Remind that love is not an abstraction.
Lately it seems I’m always on my knees.
So much sadness everywhere. But it loses its charm after a while
People stop paying attention.
It even stopped working on you—
I notice you're no longer there.
It’s just me offering a ring.
To the rest of the world
