195. Life's question and life's answer

Don't avoid
Life's question:
"Who are you?"
If you avoid it,
You will be unhappy.

Don't evade
Life's answer:
"You are inconscience-uncertainty incarnate."
If you evade it,
You are bound to be unhappy.

Who avoids?
A weakling of today.
Who evades?
A culprit
Born of earth's ignorance-clay.
