Have you heard of the nothing people?
They do not lie, but they do not tell the truth.
They do not take, but they do not give either.
They neither steal nor stop a thief.
They do not rock the boat and never pull an oar.
They will not drag you down, but always let you pull them
And if the effort kills you, the tough luck is on you.
They do not hurt you, but they refuse to help
And never volunteer for anything.
They neither love nor hate you.
They will not burn you, but fiddle happily
While you burn.
Do you know what such people are?
They are the sins of omission folks,
Spiritual voids, neither good nor bad.
They are standing still and stagnating
On the evolutionary spiral of life.
And because they never risk anything,
They can neither learn nor grow.
At least, the good keep trying
And the bad, in their own way, work just as hard.
It’s just that each is motivated by a different conviction.
Therefore, please Great Spirit, Father/Mother of all life,
Send me either a sinner or a saint,
But protect me against the nothing people.
If someone told them that they are in danger of
Wasting a precious lifetime on the Earth,
They would refuse to believe it.
Having the courage to make mistakes,
Willingly owning up to them
And looking for what they can teach us
Helps our consciousness to grow and expand.
This protects us against merely vegetating
And becoming one of the nothing people.
