poem: Temperament

No sadness should hold sway over you;
no joy shall be diminished by the darkness.
All is foretold by the prophets of old;
peace will arise in your heart in due time.

Patience, forebearance, love, and tolerance;
if not now, when will you foster these qualities?
(In your heart, mind, soul and body,
with every ounce of character strength
that you have acquired).

Yet, an added measure of divine influence

is necessary to bring those qualities to light.
