Guard well the heart that beats within
The human framework of your life;
Defend it from the lies that seek
To find a nesting place for strife.
Far from within, the world is made,
And fashioned for a hawk or dove,
That we send forth as messengers
And harbingers of what we love.
And purity is just the truth
Of consciousness, untainted by
Desire, greed or selfishness
That lets us take, to heart, a lie.
