Rushing, pushing and striving to obtain
Enlightenment and riches in an hour or a day,
Leaves us no time whatsoever to wait
For this Tree to grow tall and oak straight.

Our newly felled sapling becomes
Another very poor excuse
For some building material
Or long dead martyr’s sacred post.

All life tirelessly demands Life,
And one day may naturally grow
In Harmony with all of planet Earth,
If Man finally awakens to Know.
