A Tarnished Rule

Shu Ha Ri

Following tradition
I memorize the dogma
Never questioning nor diverging
The way is clear and harsh
My steps and thought, straight
I follow the path
Rejecting tradition
I rebel against the dogma
And question all before me
As I come to the end of the path
To stop, deep in thought
On what is the way
Creating traditions
Without harsh dogma
Embracing questions and wonder
I forge a new, more beautiful path
I walk without listening to thought
And follow the Way
