From life we learn many a valuable truth
But alas! Some dismiss it as mere froth
While life itself is a riddle
Remember, Death is an inexorable puzzle
Hatred burns life like fire
And wickedness turns it into mire
On Earth, forgiveness bonds hearts
But revenge, sure, breaks all bonds
Even a guilty falls prostrate
Before the compassionate willing to commiserate
Know, a true friend has no deceit
And a truly learned has no conceit
If jealousy is an acid which erodes
Generosity is a fuel that reloads
If inactivity is akin to death
Creativity is vital as breath
If perseverance conquers mountains
Laziness dries up fountains
While pride leads a man to his fall
Humility takes him closer to his goal
While Honesty leads him to salvation
Deceit drives him to damnation
Patience is an inexhaustible well
And perversion, a sure road to hell
Know that those who long for the crown
Should also be torn by the thorn
While love of God takes us to eternity
Love of man leads us to fraternity
Ye Friends, with such priceless tips learned in bits
Light up your life in glowing glitz
Bury your past with all its woes
As the New Year of hope brightly zooms!
