The Master Speaks - Poem by Jan Simpson
I give you two eyes to see with
Two ears to hear with.
But before I speak
You will know the answer you seek.
For the eyes have revealed
What the voice cannot hide.
The truth is what you seek.
To cover up, to deny, to defend is deceit,
To deceive another is to deceive one's self.
