Listen to Discipline

What do you do when you receive correction?
Remain haughty, and turn in another direction?
The wise ones will listen and then take courage
To change their ways even if they must suffer .

The end result is oh so pleasing,
A step toward maturity is so appeasing.
Who needs discipline? Don’t we all?
The humble accept it to avoid a fall.
