Impurity

If wheat mixed with chaff, dirt and barn dust
Is put in soil, watered with loving trust
The soil will nurture that single wheat
Won't allow garbage its growth deplete;
The soil absorbs chaff, dirt and dust
Turns them to goodness, at any cost.
It is the same for any wheat
This process, soil will repeat.

Nature is good, nature is kind
In our essence goodness will find,
Separate the garbage from our wheat
Transform our dust, evil defeat.
Nature does not mind if we are impure
She will find our wheat, goodness secure;
This is the way we know for sure
To heal ourselves, ailing world cure.
