A thing of great importance to command:
Do all you can to keep a busy mind
In order that your hidden cells expand.
Read books of worth, and intellect will grow.
The Bible is a wondrous place to start.
The thoughts of authors there were God-inspired,
And Solomon great wisdom did impart.
I have a word to offer to my heart:
You never could have too much love to give.
The Savior by His own example showed
The life of loving others you should live.
While selfishness can cause you to constrict,
Each kindness will enable you to grow.
With peace, contentment, joy you’ll have inside
Then care to all around you, you’ll bestow.
I have a word to offer to my waist
That’s unlike all my previous advice:
Extend, increase, spread out, develop—no!
To stay the same will certainly suffice.
