One Third

I don't think we suffer from a lack of knowledge
Despite the fact that learning goes deeper than the depth of an ocean
I don't think we live in a time where removing "ignorance" is the actual solution
Too many words in written text, and spoken language
But not many steps towards applying and growing 
The purpose of knowledge is not mental exhaustion
It's uplifting the deflated sense of purpose and self
It's elevating action to include the world and it's strife
One third self, one third family, one third humanity
The perfect equation for balance and success
The path of moderation means learning is only the first step
Thereafter comes an intention: the plan
Last part is the execution: the action
We don't live in a time where knowledge is scarse
We live in a time where hearts are bear
The minimum is our maximum
And beyond that it becomes suicidal or Prozac viable 
Too much "self" and too little of "who else?"
There's more to life than 9-5, board games and self invested cries
We need to rise above this need to be "something"
And aim to be giving, for our purpose dictates such
.... It's so easy to be distracted by our "to do" list
Our personal check lists
Yet the reality of our condition remains, we are on a waiting list...
