A Few Words Of Wisdom

Dance, we do to the Devil's tune,
swinging, swaying during it's full moon,
for when young we don't care,
of what can happen when we do not hear,
to the words of wisdom, that seldom come,
only later to regret what life has become.

Some are fortunate, who plan to choose,
from life's alternatives and seldom loose.
Some wander away in life's Ocean like nomads,
not seeking the correct path, makes them mad.

The devil lures you to the world of lust,
with greed and hatred welcomed, you turn to dust.
So never allow the devil to rule,
and later to repent that 'i was a fool'.

Life is not, that easy a ride,
obstracles can come, we must seek that guide,
who is nowhere else but resides within,
when in trouble, who always tells something,
listen to the words of your innerself.

Seek the company of the good and wise,
refuse to accept the devil inside,
learn to swim away from that high tide,
and refuse to be intoxicated, by that temporary pride.

The best of the gifts is the gift of wisdom,
those who understand it well, build a kingdom,
of lovely thoughts and noble deeds.
so take those baby steps towards it,
and never you'll regret your life went without it.

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
