Devoted


You must always be devoted
From what you do to what you believe
If you are not you will be noted
And only to yourself will you deceive.

If you are not faithful and committed
And unless you are truthful and credited
You will be excluded and omitted
You then certainly will be edited.

A man must always be true
In his dreams and also his goal
He must be dedicated and always pursue
Then he will find joy in his soul.

A woman she must be zealous
In her wants and needs she must be inspiring
Never should she be enraged or jealous
Calmness and virtue is her own requiring.

If a person is not devout
From what they do and from what they say
They will live their life in confusion and doubt
And heavy their soul it will weigh.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
