The Words Of Belief

Rating: 2.7
Three words will I name thee--around and about,
From the lip to the lip, full of meaning, they flee;
But they had not their birth in the being without,
And the heart, not the lip, must their oracle be!
And all worth in the man shall forever be o'er

Though the tyrant may deem him but born for his tool.
Whatever the shout of the rabble may be--
Whatever the ranting misuse of the fool--

Man is born free and uninhibited only by himself. Man is his own prisoner and what he believes to be real. Man should speak from his heart with proper care. And man should beware and proceed with great caution all the wealth in the world so as to not tarnish or allow his soul to be mislead or overcome senselessness that he denies his own true self and becomes lost in temptation and foolish ways. Man must believe in himself and always be true otherwise man will deviate and become and remain a lost soul until he redeems and learns to be at true peace with himself and thus will be true with nature and others.
