Let Man Control His Mind and Heart
Most things in life will turn out to be fine;
None can predict the course of future well;
Let sun be warmer or pleasantly shine;
It all depends on mind - heaven or hell!
Life is in giving up our vices fast;
Life is in nurturing our virtues prime;
Life is in learning wisdom from our past;
Life is in feeling joy in any clime!
Nothing is good or bad but if we control;
Our desires shouldn't seize our mind and heart;
We shouldn't forget the future of our soul;
Living in moderation is an art!
And when we share, we get more happiness;
And when we give, our heart is filled with joy;
And when we triumph over sinfulness,
No evil forces can our soul annoy!
God made the earth for man to enjoy life;
We should control our thoughts and actions well;
All excesses can add on to our strife;
A life God-centered rings a joyful bell!
