Poem



DON'T FEED THE PIGS

If in the muddy pens of sin you seek,
to cast your pearls as bribes to gain men's love,
the swine of earth will feed upon your soul;
your virtue swallowed up by passionate pigs.

The scriptures say, "Cast not your pearls to swine."
Don't let your love be heard by careless ears,
which then on twisted tongues will spread their lies:
that drag your witness down to dark despair.

Your words and acts enlightening souls of men,
must bear discernment: how and where they'll grow.
Seek not to be all things to all mankind,
and tell what's in your heart to chosen few.
