We Drink Prompts-Weakness 2

Shatsu masters teach:
live by your weaknesses
not by your strength!

those who easily digest
this strength
to the detriment
their hearts…

to drink wine with impunity
just because you can
at last
becomes a weakness
and your
will rebel…

I never thought about it
I did these lessons
but soon I realized
that this is what I usually do…

the wisdom
of saving strength
living according our weaknesses
a healthful life.

A paradox.
