Discipline Directs Life

Endure through your discipline,
And it will avoid the sin;
That in the past has plagued you,
As agony follows through.

When disciplined we respect,
The parent for the neglect;
That we caused for being fools,
And not following their rules.

I know that we do not enjoy,
Discipline without the toy;
But for God do what is right,
To find favor in His sight.

Discipline is for the good,
In doing as what we should;
And so that we shall all live,
By commandments God will give.

It seems to cause us more pain,
Than to disobey again;
But the aftermath it brings,
Will last longer as it clings.

For later on we will learn,
What good discipline will earn;
Walking the straight and narrow,
Hits targets like an arrow.

As we follow down the path,
We will be spared from the wrath;
If we go do our part,
And put them in our heart.
