Never ask
if the answer is not to be divulged

Never answer
if your retort
is to be full of knotholes or judgment.

Let all beings be on their way,
they will find what they need,
as time goes by.

Give advice only when asked.

I spoke at your own request, didn't I?

But if you don't accede
turn this page over.

I will still be there
if my presence is favored.

Freedom is a choice,
not a coercion.

Let's all be that way.
