Bruce Lee: 'Be water my Friend' - fascination with motivation

In Memory of Bruce Lee

'Be water my Friend'

and yet
penetrating the hardest rocks

be yourself
and give this water

does not concentrate
on the finger
pointing at the goal
but on the goal

let it be
your own


and therefore

Be yourself
my Friend!

Your hands lie open in the long fresh grass, --
The finger-points look through like rosy blooms:
Your eyes smile peace. The pasture gleams and glooms
