Leave the World Better Than You Found It

“Today I’m a veritable wellspring of joy and enthusiasm! Let’s go make the world a better place!”

“It’s raining.”

“Doesn’t matter.”

“My clothes are all dirty.”

“The rain will wash the ones you’re wearing.”

“I’ll never be younger than I am today.”

“…Wanna stay in and order Chinese?”

“Yes, please.”

The Quest

In a movie I saw as a boy, there was a mystical cave hidden behind a waterfall. I remember how eagerly I quested that summer, how I found nothing but slippery rock faces.

Lying here, cold and tired, I sometimes wonder… What would I have found behind the next one?
