Action and Purpose
When I was striving for success,Do you agree that all must be justified here and now? And if so, how do we know we are being just? What standard do we use to justify our actions and their purposes?
To make my mark upon the world,
I committed many sins,
I exploited many people
In order to achieve my puroses.
When my conscience pricked, I said:
All will be justified when
my task is done.
Now that I have finished striving,
And no longer want to
make more marks,
I want only to be pure,
and live in harmony with the world.
I see no difference between
action and purpose;
The action is the purpose,
The purpose the action.
All must be justified here and now.
