For everything we seek to know,

do it with integrity,

and allow the wisdom to grow.


Those whose done you wrong,

really thank them 'cause in the end,

when it comes right down to it,

it only makes you strong.


Never be obsessed with things,

it only takes you for a bumpy ride.


For every train that goes off the track,

it's a reminder you're slacking back.


For every living breath is beauty

enhanced by rythmn.


Surprises are good,

when they are good.

When they are bad,

then do you cover yourself

under the hood?


For every dollar you spend,

it makes your wallet much lighter.

Before you know it,

you're saying where's my wallet.


For all the hours it took to learn,

I found it only took minutes to do.
