Be Gentle

Whatever are your prospects as... The world may offer you
... Be sure you are a gentle soul... In everything you
do... Be kind and courteous to those... Who may be cold
and curt... Politeness is a quality... That cannot ever hurt
... There is no gain from getting mad... Nor happiness
in spite... And it is so much easier... For you to be polite
... You may not be the leader that... Your neighbors
would select... But you will be in high regard... And
have your self- respect... So try to be a gentle soul... In
every way you can... As God Himself would have you love
... And serve your fellowman.
