“There’s nothing either good or bad
but thinking makes it so.”
And riding on that apophthegm,
to lower worlds they go
until the pain compresses them
and makes them scream out, “No!”
There is some truth in points of view,
that what seems good to me
might not seem so to you;
but can you say that how you see
affects the way a thing may be?
“Good” actions do not depend
on the viewpoint you happen to select,
but on what you intend
and whether it produces good effect.
No matter what the label may be,
by its fruit we judge the tree.
