Tenets of Life
Look to see the danger
But avoid the confusion;
Look to see the spontaneity
But beware of the action.
Look to decipher scary info
But adhere to healthy thoughts;
Look to renew the mind
But maintain a loving heart.
Strive for success
But endeavor to be genuine;
Strive for happiness
But endeavor to be kind.
Share your views
But be fair always;
Be firm in what you believe
But be open minded on issues.
Be conscious of the drift
But don't be misguided;
Be aware of the highlights of the world
But focus on the Redeemer.
Encourage positive thinking
But be aware of the negatives;
Speak to the heavens
But speak life always.
