The World Needs Saving

by Zachary A. Horn

The world
needs saving
but not from
you or I.

It needs saving
but not from your
horror filled gaze.

You didn’t come
to save the world
only to show the way.

The world
needs saving
but not from
our broken hearts.

It needs saving
but not from our
anxious protest.

You didn’t come
to save the world
only to be a different way.

The world
needs saving
but not from your
sweet soul.

It needs saving
but not by
you or I.

You didn’t come
to save the world
only to show
how to be the way.
