Be it; Circumstance or Emotion

Center the teachings in your heart before speaking.
Heed the advice.
Your mind will be of value.
Your words will be of truth.
Without this respect, knowledge is impudent.
Ignorance prevails.
The sickness of souls will spread in the abortion of spirit.
A wretched void will echo beyond all presumptions.
It is a shout for the weak to gather.
I say, refuse.
Leave those dark places.
Be compelled by ethics,
by politeness,
by compassion,
and courage.
Listen.
You will be lead to peace.
Knowledge will bring you home.
