Beware about wailing of losses lest they say, “ A Choice you made
So should you stick to it! ” and don’t gnash teeth for having listened to that
Love of yours, whom the wolf had convinced so, that you should leave the beaten
Path that fed you so !” But for that choice, perhaps, I wouldn’t be writing this poem!
For bear my lesson clear, hear not what your friends tell you, but listen to what your
Heart says, lest you should lose the comfort of a soft bed and grow thick from lack
Of exercise! To live a life of risk will sharpen minds and build muscles!
To make you appreciate the spice and colours of life requires adventure rare!
For so you stepped on a path of risk and and adventure and challenge so, that
You might live life to the fullest and savour each flavour of this wonderful life!
And so took you you hobbies with the greatest zest and saw the birds wonderful,
You saw flowers exotic lining the path, all for you to savour while the world slept!
And, thank your love and those friends who helped you take the more risky path,
Of a life filled with adventure and risk, that you should live a fuller life with fruits
Ripe and waiting to be plucked. While all sleep the deep slumber of food and
Drink, you walk the paths of life, savouring the scents and tastes of a rich kind!
For remember me so, your life depends on what you choose, but choose it wise,
Lest you should wail! A life of comfort fattens, and dulls the minds, of those that
Sleep, but life presents her gifts dear only to those who remain awake and alert!
For me to wander through the paths of life would better be than to sleep!
