Trying To Be True To My Word


The most important thing in life is integrity, remaining
faithful and true to our convictions, choices and decisions
regarding the meaning of life, every religion and moral
system have their adherents - but few are true to the ethics
and morality preached

Integrity makes us steadfast and honest: no need to tell any-
one to what religion we belong or whether we are atheists,
let us just live life, let others listen to our words and observe
our behaviour: the only thing people remember in the end is
how we made them feel

When we keep our promises and never steal, we make people
feel happy and secure, when we show love by helping others
realise their dreams and light up with true delight on seeing
prosperity increase in life, we are happy because we enable
others to be joyful also

Thank you to everyone who made me feel good, responding
with a smile when I made a joke, keeping appointments, re-
plying to my emails, listening to my songs; who preached
and performed in order to teach and improve, thank you to
all who allowed me

To help them improve also, by trying to teach I learned so
much, trying to be true to my word I realised how serious
my shortcomings and how I can work on them…

poet Sir Thomas Wyatt

Farewell love and all thy laws forever;
Thy baited hooks shall tangle me no more.
Senec and Plato call me from thy lore
To perfect wealth, my wit for to endeavour.
