Again I observed all the oppression
That takes place in our world
I saw the tears of the oppressed
With no one to comfort them
The oppressors have great power
And the victims are helpless
So I almost concluded that the dead are better than the living

Then I observed
That most people are to success
By their envy of their neighbours
But this, too, is meaningless

I observed yet another example of meaningless in our world
This is the case of a man who is alone
Without a child or a brother
Yet who works hard to gain as much wealth as he can
But then he asks himself
Who am I working for
What am I giving up so much pleasure now
It is all so meaningless and depressing.

But then I also realised
That man is best motivated
In a challenging environment
Environment devoid of DEPRESSION
Environment devoid of OPPRESSION
A positive enviroment

I am motivated to create such
An enviroment where every one can say
And I welcome anyone
Ready to move with me
Together we are better.
