Look to Yourself First


Dorothy Atubiga


We are all human

We get problems all the time

Before you blame the world, look to yourself first

Your land has many things, great and good:

Rich soil, minerals and other things.

Do not go to friends cap in hand

Honey and milk flow in your land

Don’t say grass is green at their feet, because grass is greener at your feet

You’ve gotten all the richest gifts in the world

Others have not gotten half your gifts

Look to yourself and be great

Use all that you have and be great

Life is how you make it

Not how you use it

This is true independence

Let’s be truly independent!
