Know

Water your palate,
open your closed eyes,
follow the rabbit
towards a surprise.

All things you believed
were simply contrived,
innocence deceived,
interest survived.

Pursue a true path,
answers you will find,
diffuse stubborn wrath
to open your mind.

The life you conceive,
you form and perceive,
all goals you achieve
you choose to receive.

The bad times you live
are steered by pure guilt,
the more love you give
the greater life tilts.

Try to live each day
without fear or hate,
behaviors displayed
create your own fate.
