Advice From An Old Man

Seek out what is right and diligently follow it
Wherever it may lead you hither and yon,
Be diligent to go where lamps of truth are lit.

When brighter lights beckon, will you permit,
Like moths to flame be unwittingly drawn?
Seek out what is right and diligently follow it.

Be careful to seek the paths others may forfeit
For craven desires that vanish with the dawn
Be diligent to go where lamps of truth are lit.

Days quickly pass when eager youth commit,
When opportunity for good is hastily withdrawn
Seek out what is right and diligently follow it.

Days come when age and infirmity do not permit
Pure innocence like the spring-born spotted fawn
Be diligent to go where lamps of truth are lit.

Make proud those who guided you and commit
To all good things honorably engaging your life
Seek out what is right and diligently follow it
Be diligent to go where lamps of truth are lit.
