Yin & Earth


Heaven gives you a soul; the earth will give you your grave.


Alive, they could never be together
But in death they slept in the same earth.
You thought I had broken my promise,
But I was as true as the sun and stars.


Truth, like death, cannot be avoided.
When things seem to be falling apart,
stand firm and true, just as yin and earth are one:
yin is Earth, yang is Heaven.
This poem reminds you that you will ultimately find the truth 
and know who has been true to you throughout.
