Whenever you’re ready
To release all
tyranny of suffering
That is the second noble truth

Whenever you’re willing
To let go
of
past pains,and
Disappointments
That is the second noble truth

Whenever you understand
That
greed hatred ignorance
Sparks the fires
that
Ignites the furnace
Of Suffering
And its causes
That is the second noble truth.

Whenever you’ve had
Enough
Of trudging around
The eternal millstone
Of cyclic existence
and look for
a way off
That is the second noble truth.

Whenever you yearn
To step off
the trail of tears
and slip into
the forest
free
from the constraints
That set you upon
Such A destructive
course
That is the second noble truth.

Whenever you decide
To throw aside
the shackles
Of suffering
and its causes
That is the second noble truth.

OM MANI PADME HUM
