Our Thoughts


Our thoughts are free and they can be... As secret as the night
...For they are ever silent and... Forever out of sight...
Unless we put them into words... On paper or in speech...
And thereby move our mind within... Another person's reach
... But it is up to us to choose... Whatever we would think
... To narrow down our chain of thought...Or add another
link... Then why not take the pleasant thoughts... The gra-
cious and the kind... And leave the vain, and selfish and...
The hateful ones behind?... For as we think, so do we live...
And gain or lose our goal... And so God's final judgement will
... Be passed upon our soul.
