SELF MADE
Poetry by M. Linda Steffey

You make your self
Each second of each day
By what you think and do
And even what you say...
Not dictates of others
Are you really made
But by what you've said and done
Your mold, your Spirit laid...

Thinking for yourself
Is very, very hard!
Another's "rights" or "wrongs"
You must discard..
For thinking for yourself
Is who you truly are
Leaving that to others
You won't go far...

When government kills or hates
Is that you?
Religion tells who to love
Is that you, too?!
Listen to the Voice
It's deep inside
And always let your conscience
Be your guide..

Free-thinkers, God
Expected us to be!
Use your will power wisely
And be FREE!
God whispers there within
So listen well...
The Temple of your Soul
Is where He dwells!

Control never lets
A Soul to grow..
Cultivate your Spirit
Gently hoe..
Remember this..
It's something we all know..
Whatever we will reap
It's what we sow.....
