Tao & Tao


The best tactic of all is running away.


I leave by the north gate
My grief overcomes me
I am dead broke and hungry
Yet no one hears my cries.
Well, the worst has happened
No doubt it was fate
So why bother talking about it?


The north gate symbolizes the direction of difficulties.
Do not try to resist what has already happened – instead, look in the future. 
You have survived. 
Celebrate that, and draw strength for the better days to come.
