Unless - Poem by Han Min Ohn

Unless observe but see, progress you will not be revealed
Unless listen but hear, true meaning you will not ear
Unless think but memorize, the truth you will not realize
Unless persuade but talk, dictate you will not
Unless try but dream, achievement will not be seen
Unless be benevolent but crude, meet you will with brutes
Unless be sincere but evil, restless your mind ever will
Unless be generous but misery, locked in your ivory tower you ever will be
Unless persistent but petulant, success you will never get
Unless self respect you show, by nobody you will be followed
