The Lesser Evil
after it." ~ Baltasar Gracian
One bad habit leads to another, a little white lie
becomes a black hole of insanity, a borrowed minute
becomes hours of idle wasted time, a quick cheat
becomes an affair that wrecks many lives.
Lying, cheating, or stealing are the Devils handiwork
and the price to pay is shame, guilt and remorse.
Today, be a good sentinal of your door and let in
only the kind, the loving, the patient and tolerant
the happy, joyous and free .
Today, start with an attitude of gratitude, maintain
a constant contact with your Higher Power, and
seek to do the will of the God of your understanding
and know that the rewards are sobriety, serenity,
and peace of mind.
Happiness is not letting the lesser evil in the door.
Happiness is helping someone help themselves.
