Zeal, Let not Bad Habits StealJanuary 31, 2023
Good habits, try to cultivate,
To practice them, don't hesitate,
Acquire them by being obstinate,
All life's problems will dissipate.
Have in heart enough gratitude,
Understand the beauty of solitude,
Kindness gives heart great magnitude,
Always think thrice and then conclude.
Anger is indeed highly poisonous,
Anger is to madness synonymous,
When smile's arrival is spontaneous,
Then, success will be instantaneous.
From heart, generosity must spring,
As it is a beautiful and wonderful thing,
Peace can be obtained by giving,
Generous man enjoys a peaceful living.
Patience improves the waiting capacity,
For success when there is scarcity,
Don't self-pity, but continue every activity,
Resultant success won't be a brevity.
Human mind is highly delicate,
Prayer is used to finely lubricate,
Useful thoughts, mind must fabricate,
Allow not mind to wrongly vacillate.
Let the heart be ruled by mercy,
With love to all becoming the policy,
Treat all by showing basic courtesy,
Nothing spoils the mind like jealousy.
Pacify the mind with contentment,
"Success is life" is a wrong judgement,
Maintain a cool and calm temperament,
Lost time will have no replacement.
Having toward anything deep attachment,
Ultimately leads only to great bereavement,
He who check's mind's wrong inducement
Possesses a talent equivalent to firmament.
In life any grief,
Will always be brief,
God is the only Chief,
Approach Him for relief.
