Do Not Bargain With Life - Poem by john chizoba vincent


He who think he is standing
Should be mindful so that he fall not.
Life has so many ways of dealing
With individuals according to their mindset.
Let he that sit, sit properly in peace
Least he is pull up by another mightier,
Life itself is mysterious and funny in nature.

I have been foolish once and see
The outcome of folly then I ran to
Wisdom and behold the troubles
Of being uncommon wise among men.
In all I discovered that all is vanity
In excessive use and acquire of them.
Wisdom has her own penny to offer
And foolishness has his own coin to give.

What life offers me might be different from yours,
So, when standing; do not be over righteous in your standing, neither will you be too stupid in your sitting
For loving your neighbour as yourself does not
Includes you bathing your neighbour without his consent.
Life herself have so much troubles and shortcomings.

You are the master of your fate,
What life gives to you sometimes is
Of your making and your actions which had been sown.
Do not bargain with life for a penny,
The man who thinks he can, wins.
Life is governed by your mindset and thought.
