Pleasures And Pain - Poem by Oyekake Satty (O. S.) Joshua

Passion may be misguided
Pleasure may be short-lived
But the pain may last a lifetime

A reckless passionate journey
Brings long lasting discomfort
An uncontrollable appetite
Leads to a regrettable action

So guard your life with honor
Clothe yourself in prudence
Wrapped with love and integrity

And Keep an eye on false friends
And the slippery grounds around
For no true friend leads another
Through the path of sin
