Meditations on the Aspects of Self (2/3)

(See part 1 here.)

The second triad is that closely held;
Lore, wealth, and oaths surround.

Before all else is lore; knowledge of the world.
Unstudied, the greatest powers are impotent;
The wise may split a mountain with one blow.

Next comes wealth: in tools and riches both.
The one extends your reach; the other is potential.
Through these things both your will is done.

More precious still, oath-contracts owned.
The web of obligations binds all hands;
Their holder may wield many as one.
