Shakubuku

I’ve found

If you avoid doing it, or

Put it off, it’s like not doing

Gongyo,

Today,

A million excuses

Too much time thinking, all was Theory

Not enough time practicing.

Shakubuku is never easy,

So every moment I must strive

To Discover, or strive to accomplish my

Daily mission.

Tonight, I resolved to do Gongyo to

Be “futuristic” as Pres. Ikeda mentioned

In his “Reflections on Youth: a Time of Construction.”

 

Youth passes too fast

Just Shakubuku

Without a second thought;

Of course its easier to say than

Do, but work hard and drive those

Piles deep

For construction

Of happiness.
