Our lives were made for more than this
For more than material things
For more than competitiveness
For more than working jobs that drain our souls while giving our earnings to others who’ve made us sell ours to them.
For more than all of this.
We were made to love, not hate.
To share, not horde
To make peace, not war
To coexist, not build walls
To understand and to be understood
To respect and be respected
Yes, our lives were made for more than how we live them.
So, why don’t we strive harder to live for how we were made rather than for what we’ve become?
