If

If each grain of sand were to say:
One grain does not make a mountain,
There would be no land.

If each drop of water were to say:
One drop does not make an ocean,
There would be no sea.

If each note of music were to say:
Each note does not make a symphony,
There would be no melody.

If each word were to say:
One word does not make a library,
There would be no book.

If each brick were to say:
One brick does not make a wall,
There would be no house.

If each seed were to say:
One seed does not make a field,
There would be no harvest.

If each of us were to say:
One person does not make the difference,
There would never be love and peace on earth.

You and I do make the difference.
Begin today and make the difference.

  1. Addition
    If there is no spark, there can’t be a fire.
    When each one contributes intellectually,
    Change can be brought about.
    When everyone says someone will do it,
    And no one does it, it’s sad indeed!

  2. If each of us were to say:
    One person does not make the difference,
    There would never be love and peace on earth.

    The most beautiful lines in the whole poem. Thanks for sharing this wonderful piece !!
