Secrets by the Saucerful

A word of advice, padwan.
The more you write anthems to your incompetence,
the more evidence
you provide to the world
of your exact insufficiencies.
You provide the haters clues,
your enemies a code sheet,
you offer all those who seek to doubt you
validation of their opinions.

Keep your fears quiet.
Keep your doubts to yourself.
Let no one know your weaknesses.
What can defeat you never need be said.
Be stoic and vigilant
and prepared to tell no soul
anything at all.

In this there is strength.
In silencing your weakness,
in hiding it from the sun,
you can make it wither.
Hidden from all
you can make your weakness die.
