You Still Wonder
by John M Wenitong, QLD
The life we led seemed clear to us but progress had to come You say: it’s best for all mankind but proof you show us none Our Earth is sick from cleverness the oceans’ a rubbish bin We did not treat the earth like this old people say this is Sin I know you wonder why we didn’t like to do your dirty work Well we bin lost sweat blood and pride an you got all the perks And yet you nearly all complain that life and work is tough Let me tell ya from Your sacred book mien Herr you ain’t had it rough Now our young ones follow you want to own things too Possessions many and greed abounds still can’t take it with you And when you die and nourish the earth you’ll be just like me Your color and pride will wither away with luck you’ll feed a tree You wonder why I’m angry you wonder why I’m pissed We lived with the Spirit of the God-dammed land an you don’t think she’s missed
You just have to do what you know is right.
If you want to teach people, young or old, you must start where they are are–at their level of understanding. If you see that they are already beyond your level of understanding, let them teach you. Since steps toward spiritual advancement are taken in such varied order, most of us can teach one another.
