Some of the most generous people I know have no money.
That’s how it should be.
When we have no money, it’s a different lifestyle.
When you see the old people…
In our language we have no such word as”please” or “thank you”,
because of what is expected of us is that we share and give what we have.
Today we have to say “please”, we have to say “thank you”,
we have to beg for things.
In the old days,
it was a given thing that we would share things.
That was a part of who we are.
And not only for Aboriginal people,
I would expect people all around the world
would do the same things before money.
But nowadays “It’s mine.” There are words like “mine.”
We don’t share our things anymore.
And it’s become…
It kills us as human beings, as a society, as a race.
When I say “race”, I’m talking about the human race.
But we deny people shelter, we deny other people food,
we deny other people their survival, purely because of money.

Get Together
Love is but a song to sing.
Fear’s the way we die.
You can make the mountains ring.
Or make the angels cry.
Though the bird is on the wing
And you may not know why.
Come on people now,
Smile on your brother.
Everybody get together.
Try to love one another Right now.
Some may come and some may go.
We shall surely pass.
When the one that left us here
Returns for us at last.
We are but a moment’s sunlight
Fading in the grass.
If you hear the song I sing
You will understand.
You hold the key to love and fear
All in your trembling hand.
Just one key unlocks them both.
It’s there at you command.
