靠自己 We Lean Against Ourself (With English Version)
Mother answers: “Because our body do not have bone to support, so we just can climb, and because we climb slow, so we need such shell to protect us.”
Little snail: “Sister caterpillar does not have bone and climbs slow as well, why she doesn’t need to carry a shell?”
Mother: “Because sister caterpillar will be changed to a butterfly, the sky will protect her.”
Little snail: “But brother earthworm does not have bone, climbs slow and also will not change to a butterfly, why he doesn’t need to carry a shell?”
Mother: “Because brother earthworm knows drilling into the sand, the earth will protect him.”
Little snail cries and says: “We are so poor, the sky will not protect us and also the earth will not protect us as well.”
Mother answers: “That’s why we have a shell.”
We do not need the protection from the sky, we do not need the protection from the earth, we protect ourself.
We do not lean against the sky nor the earth, we lean against ourself.
