Waste No Time
Waste no time debating,
What defines your moral character.
Let not your public words
Be another man’s disparager.
Actions speak more clearly
than a thousand words you say,
Don’t allow ignorance or arrogance.
to be the persona you display.
No need to argue endlessly,
On the attributes of reputable men,
Or whether the depth of their piety
Is more significant than those born again.
Allow kindness to be your guiding hand
let compassion hold your sway
Embody those values you discuss.
Let goodness illume your way.
Again, don’t waste your time
But advocate without debate,
For the empathy of those
who’s welfare you narrate.
A good man should not be lauded
nor defined by other’s praises,
His good deeds are quietly applauded
By those less fortunate whom he raises.
“Waste no more time arguing about what a good man should be. Just be one.”
