The ways of the wise are the same
throughout time and the world –
to witness, no words are needed
nor is there a creed…You need only
pay heed to the path they have shown.
Be willing to stand alone.
This the wise have always known.
There is no riddle to solve
no prayer to recite
no sin to absolve. Heaven
is not some five-star hotel
just accross the county line
on the other side of life.
Paradise has no switchboard
and takes no reservations.
