The Destructive Three


I know of three things
Which are among the three things
That will make your stay in life
Devoid of trouble

Money
Loved by many
If not legally chased
Shortens a life well lived

Woman
Taken out of man
Chasing after many of them invites trouble
May also make your life miserable

Tongue
A powerful weapon seen as little
But has the ability
To pull down or raise the greatest entity

Limit your thirst for these destructive three
And your life shall be perfectly free
From the unnecessary stress
That these life offers
