Much Ado About Nothin'

If there is anything I have learned in my life, it is †hat I know nothing, because I don't know everything.
It is very hard to look out at a world you only want to make better and safer but knowing you will add your share of pain to it as well.
It's painful to know that with life and the world the way it is I can only ever, if I'm lucky, do more good than harm in this world, even though I don't want to harm it at all.

I don't truly understand anything fully but I know that  
everything is connected somehow.
And I know good intentions are not enough.
But I also know that fear is death.
Just because I don't understand this world and the people in it or my place in it etc. doesn't mean that I shouldn't still try to be truly kind.
To Listen.
To See.
So I will keep trying to do the best I can in the best way I know how.
Even if it's two steps forward and one step back.
It may seem like slow going, but that's alright.
I'll keep trying to do more good than harm in my life anyway.
And maybe that's a thing close to hope.
