Assortment of Gear Wheels

Keep your temper,

Don’t hold a grudge,

Make sure you divert your eyes,

Avoid compromising situations,

Be a man of integrity,

Careful not to brag about your life.



Be honest

Never tell a lie.


You can do it

You can live it

Ensure the wheels of life turn

Safe on the icy roads of the heart.


Bind my hands

Hold me down

Suppress my spirit

Nail my freedom.


Look me in the eyes

Hold the gaze


Give up trying

And in a polite voice say,

“It is finished.”

    Phew, that’s a bit scary! But I do like the positive ‘you can do it’ verse. Nicely written nonetheless.
