Don't fill your vaults with glowing, shiny stones.
It's invitation to all cheats and thieves.
Don't know by mind what you don't know by bone.
Make sure you've lost before you up and grieve.
Then when you grieve, take time to fully feel.
Don't let your mind write stories so untrue
that they turn melancholy like a wheel
that gathers and grows with each turn anew.
Be kind and true, but not so kind and true
so as to kill with gifts or a mean tongue.
Don't do what would be best that you not do,
and only sing of those heroes unsung.
Oh, every piece of wisdom has its day,
so don't hitch so tight that you're led astray.
Impressive! I know how difficult it is to write a sonnet. You did a great job with form and content.
