Sonnet: How One Should Live

Emulate man must, the good in others;
Not the vices that lead to take quick stardom;
Flock together birds of the same feathers;
Empoisoned a soul, recovers seldom.

Spirit when denatured, can’t be consumed;
To gain Heaven, renounce one must Satan;
That God is very kind, man has assumed;
Evil-minds could need the whip and baton.

Judged will be ev’n insane by the Maker;
Man dare not ev’r play a demigod’s role;
The Feast is open; where is the taker?
Through good deeds, man must splint his ‘fractured soul.’

A rich man’s soul may live in poverty!
Heaven’s far from one’s earthly liberty.

by Dr. A.Celestine Raj Manohar M.D.,
