The poet in me give me the words I need
That I can learn this simple creed,
So I may know the way of life
Enjoy the good, keep out the strife.
Self-discipline is my desire
It will keep me out of the fire,
To increase my own will power
I will not cower.
Emotions are the way I feel
Control of them, they are the real deal,
So I can reason, good or bad
Then keep the joy and shun the sad.
Imagination can light the fire
Can create a vision higher,
My conscience is my judge each day
So I can choose a better way.
In my memory, can impress
All the good I need address,
So in my mind I have power
To live my life this very hour.
Self-discipline it is my creed
And it will give me all I need,
To set the goal I can complete
So I can create a life that’s sweet.
