Have you asked the world about this?

The world says many things.

Seven billion things, in different dialects and intonations.
Seven billion stories, seven billion dreams to portray.

There are seven billion versions of the truth out there;
seven billion ways to tell right from wrong.

In a world with seven billion ways to say yes or to say no,
you can listen all you want, but can they tell you which way you need to go?

Have you asked yourself about this?

You’re one in seven billion.

A needle in a haystack of needles.
A sheep in a herd of sheep sent off to pasture.

But there are seven billion versions of the truth out there;
and not one of them, we can truly know.

Who’s to say your version of the truth isn’t credible,
when it’s a truth only you could know?

–ย “Seven Billion”ย — for Len Fabrigar, a friend. (5.5.17).
