The Fisherman's Net



The fisherman’s net thrown into the sea

Catching fish and weed alike

Sometimes the catch is for pleasure

Sometimes the catch is for necessity

The net does not distinguish nor select what to catch

It is up to the fisherman to know

Where the best place is to throw the net

Selecting and gathering what serves

Is the fisherman’s job

Discarding what is of no use.


The net is strong

Although the weight of all collected

Can still cause a tear


Our backs are like a strong and sturdy net

But breakable when too many burdens are carried.

Throw back into the sea as unwanted weeds your burdens

And become free.
