You speak these spoken tales, Understand they are not mine, Unknown to you is my value, Until I know of mine,

Stop these spoken tales, These tales you have not lived, Though you speak with wisdom, The self has not become,

Let not these spoken tales, Defer you from your purpose, Do not be fearful now, Do what you think will not,

Speak of spoken tales, Hear them, do not listen, Know they are your lesson, Enlighten with your mission.
