"Yin and Yang..."

They say...
"One World, One Dream"
"It's not the's the Struggle"
"The Time to Dream is Now."

But why then
are there so very few who "have" so very much ...
and so very many who "have" so very little?

is balance and equality not achieved?
Can it ever be?
are millions starving while millionaires play games with hoops
and orange balls?

after the uplifting opening ceremonines of Beijing 2008
do I feel blue?

"There can be no peace as long as there is grinding poverty,
social injustice, inequality, oppression, environmental degradation,
as long as the weak and small
continue to be trodden by the mighty and powerful."
~Tenzin Gyatso, The 14th Dalai Lama
