Hear These Things Life Made Me Learn

Hear these things life made me learn,
and after them, you too must yearn.

When life pierce you with the spear of pestilence,
tame your tongue with the bridle of silence.
For life is fed from the kitchen of chaos;
your candid silence is a noise of its loss.

Hear these things life made me learn,
and after them, you too must yearn.

When life serves you pleasant smiles,
from a distance of a thousand miles;
Do not laugh your best the most,
for life is a comely and cunning host.

Hear these things life made me learn,
and after them, you too must yearn.

Life is so perfidious like a promiscuous lady,
yet innocence roams her face like a new born baby.
Do not hoard her conjugal rights,
else she keeps her light off your numerous nights.

Hear these things life made me learn,
and after them, you too must yearn.
Life is most relished with the interlude of distance;
But do not bore it with your candid resistance.
A divorce from life is a fatal omission,
like a hell burning in an ocean.

Hear these things life made me learn,
And after them, your hearts must yearn.
