NEW POEM: JANUARY 4, 2015

MONKS

We are born to shine and climb high

We speak our mind without falter

When we do fall and lie

We bow and pray at the alter

We take it one step at a time

We pursue the supreme truth

We oppose every single dime

We rebuff the fountain of youth

We see a lofty purpose exists

We live out life with no flaw

We use our reason before the fists

We devotedly keep the heart of the law.
