Blame & Shame . . . Pain & Gain

Blame & Shame . . . Pain & Gain

Fixing up his sleeping area

It’s said that “Tough times never last but tough men do.”

Generally, however, men apportion blame without shame

Forgetting the benefits of pain to beget gain.

When God gave us dominion over the world

We were meant to navigate & overcome our woes

He further endowed us with the mind & intellect

To chart our course that we elect or select.

We have the choice to make our way

Yet many suffer failure, self-pity & go astray

Ignorance, grief, poverty & shame that need not be

If we can be just like the bees.

If people choose the easy way out

They can never be tough & stout

For toughness comes through pain

If at all there’s going to be any gain.

Who’s to blame that we should suffer shame?

Definitely not the circumstances or pain

Set your mind right filling your heart with delight

Map your way & secure your Book of Life.
