‘The Silent Flute’ by Bruce Lee
I wish neither to possess,
Nor to be possessed.
I no longer covet paradise,
More important, I no longer fear hell.
The medicine for my suffering
I had within me from the very beginning,
But I did not take it.
My ailment came from within myself,
But I did not observe it ,
Until this moment.
Now I see that I will never find the light
Unless, like the candle, I am my own fuel,
