Words of Advice

Whoever attends to the Lord,
Their requests will not be ignored;
And prospers from putting their trust,
Instead of into earthly lust.

The person who is truly wise,
Speaks the truth rather than lies;
Understanding in how to earn,
For helping another to learn.

Reason is a fountain of life,
That helps you through toils and strife;
But stupidity punish fools,
Since they are ignoring the rules.

When the wise heart controls the speech,
It is able go out and reach;
To others who may desire,
Your knowledge that they require.

Soft words are as a honeycomb,
Soothing after coming back home;
Sweet to the spirit and the soul,
Easier for reaching your goal.

There is a way that will seem right,
To God with blessings in His sight;
But finally comes the last breath,
Eventually ends in death.

And so from this point in time on,
From this earth after we are gone;
The direction took for your path,
Has been fixed if you feel the wrath.
