Keep the essence

Keep the essence
Remove the rest

Burn your life
With fire of truth

The gold will stay
The dross will melt away

Less is more
Least is most
When all you have
In your life
Are truly essential


Being True and Speaking True

Just one word
can spark love
or spark war

Guard your tongue!

Learn to discern
if and when
it is wise to tell
the truth

You cannot speak
the truth
at all times and places

There is a
proper time and place
to speak the truth

Stay true to yourself
but know that you need not
speak that truth to others

Choose your confidants
It will make
all the difference
