Be yourself, be true,
No other things need to do.
A loud thunder, a swift wind,
Life is all there is. Scattered raindrops on the muddy road.
Let it be real. Let it be you.
This full moment of you.
Don’t lie any more. No time to be sweet…

Be yourself and be be true.
Don’t be afraid. Just go ahead.
Sailing on the blue turquoise sea. Going deeper and further… Go ahead.

My heart is full of the beauty of sorrow today.
For the day is a new day. With or without me.

Be yourself. Be true.

~To a dear friend.
On a sad day.
