A good name is better,
Than having a great wealth;
Or a scarlet letter,
And causing you ill health.
 
Respect is better than,
Having silver and gold;
To be a humbled man,
And not being so bold.
 
Both the rich and the poor,
Have something that is shared;
The Lord is at the core,
Of the soul He prepared.
 
The wise man sees evil,
And will run to avoid;
Usually the devil,
Caused it to be deployed.
 
But the simple pass on,
Gullible as they are;
Will suffer until dawn,
With a permanent scar.
 
Those with humility,
Also will fear the Lord;
Have the ability,
Have the wealth to afford.
 
Evil people have traps,
Thorns awaiting ahead;
Snares that have leather straps,
That tighten on the head.
 
Whoever is alert,
Will stay away from them;
Because they will avert,
And God will not condemn.
 
Train children to respect,
In the way they should go;
So they will not reject,
All the things they should know.
