LESSONS PARAMOUNT

Folks, 
Look to what's right and just, not man-made rules, 
Keep wary of constituents who cater to fools, 
Count not on so-called friends, count on your next breath, 
Breathing ominous volumes of understanding curbs the tides 
of mental death, 
Accompany reason and not just the goodness of the flesh, 
Flesh carried unwanted weight, unload that freight, 
Seek sage counsel, instant joys that dominate, 
Lurk lifelong regrets that illuminate, clean that slate, 
Slate out your life expectancy as time carries 
no consistency on history except results, 
Resulting in fates' consequence, tap into your conscience, 
Chivalrous pleasures lead to frivolous treasures, 
Leaning on principle speaks surmountable measures, 
Measure-up not to other's expectants, 
nor simmer down with forgone reluctants, 
Understand the value of the priceless and useless, 
The hopeless and the ruthless amount to the fruitless, 
Rewards from the rootless, lest you flock like aimless sheep, 
Can wanders thread fires or scale mountains in leaps! 
Forgotten to the motherless that weep, 
After midnight will you be left behind asleep? 
Acknowledge virtue, honor, and valor, 
And never give in to needless squalor, 
A man's actions are his final judge, 
Judge not, lest you fall to a dreary grudge, 
Focus on neccessities, and not what you want, 
For this is great lessons paramount!
