O' Mind

Do not rest in eyes
Just to see all vice
O' mind
Do not stoop to lies
To be a bad splice
O'mind
Do not taste such spice
To bend for low price
O'mind

Watch all things you find
And choose the right bind
For life
Life can't be asigned
Worthless to end blind
Dark life
Brings only grief lined
Care for, my dear mind
High life

That you've gained high life
That your pride ups rife-
No wise
Turns again dark life
Step by step down strife-
Not nice
Beware, for your life
Can't end blind with strife
Be wise
