We are free to do all things,
But there are some things not wise;
Because of the sin that it brings,
Iniquity in disguise.
All things we are free to do,
But not all is for the good;
The path that you may pursue,
Think twice if you really should.
Think of not just for your own,
But also for your brother;
And if they like to condone,
Being fit for another.
Anything that you may buy,
Do not ask if wrong or right;
For they all exemplify,
The Lord and His Holy Light.
For all things here on the earth,
Reason enough for to praise;
Costing less than its true worth,
And be thanking Him always.
In Him all things do belong,
The owner of all you see,
For in God nothing goes wrong,
That He gives to you and me.

I really thought about this and I was really helped. Some of the prose is too terse (for the wealth of wisdom that is there) but it is nevertheless a very time-worthy and thought-fueling poem.
