Whispers of Wisdom 1

If we do not learn to make good things happen,
we will live to murmur when bad things happen…
Evil men become vibrant and violent
when the righteous becomes slothful and silent…
Great leaders promote equity and justice
but bad rulers preen on pride and prejudice…
The world will always have some form of slavery,
we need to teach our children the art of bravery…
Greed makes mighty men become morally bankrupt
but the needy should not get confused and corrupt…
Stars do not lose their great beauty and brightness
when twilight strolls in with its doom and darkness…
Do not lose your little light just to earn wages,
do not lose your soul when starvation rages.
Meat for the belly and the belly for meat…
We lose what matters most when we choose to cheat.
Women, weed and wine make some men mad…
Money, mansions and music make some women glad.
This green garden will one day cease to grow…
that sparkling star will someday cease to glow.
