Strive

Standard

Strive:

Strive to follow your own nature.
Let reason be your guiding light.
Avoiding the moral danger,
You must seek that which is the right.

Let reason be your guiding light.
It is fate determines your time.
You must seek that which is the right,
Knowing vice is the only crime.

It is fate determines your time.
In life you’ll encounter failure,
Knowing vice is the only crime.
Strive to follow your own nature.

In life you’ll encounter failure,
Recognize things indifferent.
Strive to follow your own nature.
And blame not men their ignorance.

Recognize things indifferent.
Life is the great struggle, a fight.
And blame not men their ignorance,
If you can, guide them through the night.

Life is the great struggle, a fight.
Remember: none is a stranger,
If you can, guide them through the night.
Strive to follow your own nature.


I wrote a poem the other day.  It’s a formalized style called a pantoum, where the second and fourth line of each quatrain become the first and third line of the next.

    If I am barely a man for writing I have never been one for poetry either. However, I came across a godd poem that both male and female could learn from. Take care.
