In woods lived a man and dog

In simple cabin made of log

Daily trekking twists and bends

Together were they best of friends

All the years dog licked and ate

From the man’s own personal plate

Wisdom dawned on man at last

Dog shouldn’t eat as in the past

So special bowl in kennel kept

Where dog by fire lay and slept.

The dog resisted tooth and nail

Whined and barked to no avail

Man must work for years to change

Entrenched habits - rearranged

Same with mind, hard work fine tuned

Makes wisdom reign where folly ruled


O Lord, may I use your energy well; grant me an iron will, determination and dedication to master the mind. May my habit be only Thee. May I eat, drink, work and walk and speak and think only in Thee.
