Control (Free Style) Poem by Dorian Petersen Potter

Learn to control yourself and you'll be fine
Losing control is bad, denotes lack of discipline
You can't control others but you can control the self
Why control others when you can't even control yourself

You can control many things like a regular machine
Controlling people, well that's another story
There are things and events that are out of our hands
Man can't control nature, so why try to get that glory

Giving advice is good to give to others when asked
But trying to control everything is simply a mistake
Trying to control other lives is just a foolish dream
Lack of control and discipline brings only heartache

Behaviour and temper you should control all the time
When you're out of control you're not thinking fine
Lack of judgment comes from a mind out of control
Practice self-control and then your life will shine
