the nature of the path

there are thorns on some bushes

so choose a path where you avoid those bushes

and when they are in the meadows in which you

find yourself walking, do what you can to walk

around those bushes with thorns

and remember that there are

plenty of places with soft green pastures

with warm sand next to bubbling brooks

with shelter from the rain and the storms

of life

you can't be understood

by those who can't understand

quit arguing with the wind

quit hating the sun for rising

find good friends,

skillful friends,

and cherish them
