Wisdom comes to the good of heart,
But good requires wisdom.
Just with both held in high regard
Can we unlock its kingdom.
Ignorance of the blind of mind
Itself won’t seek the entrance.
Unaware we are locked behind
Its self-restricting presence.
Just by finding the light of truth
Can we perceive the entry
At the end of a shiny route
That shields it like a sentry.
Woken up by the dark of night,
A time of confrontation,
Through a sense of what’s wrong and right,
We notice its foundation.
When it’s walked by the strong of will
The road ahead starts forming.
But the door can’t be reached until
Our essence starts transforming.
Wisdom comes to the good of heart.
In deed and understanding
Lies the key to defeat the guard.
Embrace what it’s demanding.
