  The way
bends
like
a bow
  pressing
down
whatever
was high
raising
up
whatever
was low
filling
the empty,
leveling out
extremes
how
different
is
the way
followed
by men--
they
take
from the poor
and
give
to the rich
only
someone
who
walks
along
the way
gives away
riches,
releasing
each arrow
without
a grunt,
hitting
the target
by
letting go
