peak performance : musing on men's group

intrepid warriors keep the faith
frugal times present many lessons

seek the wholeness that is you

become that wholeness through integration
of your student/ teacher states

free your communication of friction
with genuine respect and bridled truth

flow freely between dedicated action and true listening
character develops in its purest form this way

fret not the opinions of naysayers
stay true to higher ideals

empty yourself of expectations
then set some of your own

learn to live in resonance with your surroundings
recognize dissonance immediately

there exist places where men can talk freely
can confront their history and rewrite their futures

a new man emerges unwilling to compromise ideals,
humble enough to learn life's lessons
& bent on finding clear communication
maybe even fostering some himself
