Don’t relent in any way
Be straight and focused along the way.
Don’t give listening ear to the rubbish people say
Just keep your ears above their bay.
But, if you think you have missed your way
To ask a man you always may!
Use your tools to enrich your pay!
Make gold pots from earthen clay!
Engrave your name on ceramic tray!
By working hard all through the day.
But if you think of a wayward way;
My child, I fear you’re lost -astray!
Take these words for not a bray;
Let them sink in your heart till grey.
As much as you can please pray;
Before you put your wants to play.
Are you thinking of a way to repay?
Tell my words to your kids, I’d say!
