Self-expression is good, self-control is better.


Once I lost my temper,
Threw it quite arise,
Oh, I did not realize,
Part of me had died.
Oh, I did not realize,
That swift anger's fire,
Burns the heart that reaches
Towards the sky-and higher,
Once I kept my temper,
When things tried my soul,
Kept it sweet and Shining,
Wonderful and whole,
Then-and this is truthful-
All the way I trod,
Seemed to lead me brightly
Towards the throne of God.
