The Silent Flute

This one has to be my favourite poem of Bruce Lee’s ❤️️

I wish neither to possess
Nor be possessed
I no longer covet paradise
More important, I no longer fear hell

The medicine for my suffering
I had within me from the very beginning,
But I did not take it

My ailment came from within myself
But I did not observe it
Until this moment

Now I see that I will never find the light
Unless, like the candle, I am my own fuel,
Consuming myself

~ Bruce Lee

A true inspiration ❤️️
