-Balance The Books-



The laws of life
audited and penned by life itself
laws, like giving
must, be balanced
by it's receiving end

The laws of taking
is rated by the replacing
as with light is with darkness
or the moon with gravity
and restful activity

The laws of goodness
to be pitted against that of evil
and vanity to be beaten
by humility's bended knees
as pride takes it's fall

The laws of love
will and always overcome hate
and leaves prejudice
with biasness to fumble
at the bottom of the golden gate

It is the laws of the God of all
that cannot be ignored
For the books of life
will be balanced
by the Almighty Auditor Himself
