The Perfection of Concentration

The mind is a weapon,
Destroy yourself
Or destroy your self.

Perfect blade,
Perfect the blade,
Sharpen at 22 1/2°

Gather the mind
Take measured aim
Elegantly cut

Don't grasp
Don't slack
Hold balance between

Stay focused
Resharpen
Cut again

Decimate like a breeze
Like a trickling stream
Like breath

With stealth
and grace
Annihilate delusion

Kiss with kissaki
Gently penetrate
Lucidly powerful

Master the blade
Govern your mind
Cut away the deadwood

The mind is a weapon,
Destroy yourself
Or destroy your self.
