Golden Gates

Golden Gates

The story goes, “In days of old, a Man

Held this to be self-evident: do not

Reveal what’s told to you, until you can

Examine its intent; the way is fraught,

Each step, a chance to undertake a test —

Go thoughtfully through three pure Gates of Gold:

One asks, ‘Is it true?’ Two asks, ‘Is it Best?’

Lastly, ‘Is it Kind?’ If not, put on hold.”

Do not impart what could be quite untrue —

Go carefully, for traps are set to bind

A man whose tongue is loose — and debts accrue

To him whose words, unneeded, are unkind.

Each time temptation lures your wayward voice,

Stand at these Golden Gates, and make your choice.
