Start Fires And Put Them Out. - Poem by Abdul Wahab Sharief

Its easier to start a fire,
Its much harder to put it out.
Its easier to be branded a liar,
Its harder to get that brand-tag off.
Its simpler to trust a sweet face,
Easier to be decieved by the same.
Easier to earn disgrace,
Than to be virtous and take the blame.
Its easier to sin,
Than to be simple and win.
Cheaters intially grin,
But isnt it better to laugh last.
