Forget the praying and waiting. No gain
was ever gotten through a wish or whine.
No how, no way, does anyone dodge pain.
We're in decline and time we grow a spine.
The 'I am', that you are, is run by laws,
that you, ( as 'Me' ), subjectivly, can learn
to steer to better ends. Unaddressed flaws
of character, whose shapes we don't discern,
contaminate cognition's tools. Our goals
can never come to pass, unless we make
the time and effort to, rinse clean our souls,
and osmote out, our sloth, our hog and snake.
