“What Can I Do?” a poem

“What Can I Do”

As I sit and eat and look out at the world, from warfare, to welfare, to earthquakes, to riots, to the want and desire for peace.

There is within me a nagging, soul dragging possibility, or worrisome thought, that will not cease.

“What can I do?” this is the troubling thought, you see … I mean really… is saving everyone in this whole wide world really up to little old me? … Honestly? … How could something like that be?

After all, “What CAN I do?” … “What can I do?”… Really? … because I see within me the inability to erase the suffering in the world that I find…

“What can I do?” … “What can I do”… these are the only words bouncing around in my mind.

Small am I, not famous or even well-known. Tired am I, without finances or fortune enough for the trumpet I desire to blow. Despised am I, different, not well-fitting, not trusted because I refuse to follow greed’s bidding.

“What can I do? What can I do?” these are the words, every time.

If only my words mattered, if only they could captivate the world’s heart. I would type till my fingers bleed, as if each letter were a life-giving seed, if only my words when heard could change a single person’s heart… then perhaps from my head those worrisome words “What can I do” would part.

“What can I do?” … Well… I suppose this “desire” to help others I could share.

Perhaps, “What can I do?” is meant to be there.

Perhaps there is a reason, and although we are not yet in season, perhaps these words are a sign… a spark of the Divine… showing us that the desire to love alone is more than enough to save the world each and every time.

And so, my friends, “What Can I Do?” is something … I hope … you also find.

    Thanks for this, Jacob. I think about this many times. How can I make a big impact in this world of woe? How much power do I have? I really want to know. What is My Father’s ultimate plan for me and for this world? I have a great desire to do more. Why do I have this desire? Surely it’s not….just to be frustrated. Does my Father not have bigger plans for us than any of us know at this point. I would love to see the “bigger Plans” here before I die. I am 70 years old. Somehow ..what other people write and think has not always given me answers. So far I’ve been given love, great love for humankind. Is that the answer? I love your writings. You have never blown me away, with stuff I can’t handle. So keep on putting it out there, my dear friend, Jacob. If there’s more to be had…I want it…with all of my heart.

    Love always….Lena

    sorry to blow up with comments but I do have one more it is the division that is causing the problems between us all these days but it must start first with in the mind because it is divided from being domesticated into this realmyou know Abel and Cain haha you see Abel must kill Kane in order to have an undivided mind it is the true identity that must come forth you must realize who and what you are once the division has stopped within only then can we make the outside of us better because we will see everyone for who they are because they are our family and what you do to others you were only doing to yourself…..as Albert Einstein said and myself hahaha we are spirits soles operating these bodies so in truth we are souls having and human experience what I have just given is the keys….if you can see others as your equal that is the only way to established unconditional loveyou do not have to look for our Father look within for that unconditional love and trust me he will find you

      Chad, many many years ago things just started to click… I just had a desire to seek the things I now share… It was all kicked in high gear right around 9/11 — in any event I believe there is a very important reason behind it. And I believe we havent seen anything yet 😉

    Nice brother!! Very nice!! You r doing what needs done. We cannot have peace in this realm when we r divided. When others start to see its what operates the body that matters, n outside of these bodies we are twins, only difference is whats in the mind. U do the works of our fatherJacob!! U r my brother!
