Anger -/- Character

3:7
Anger

Malicious delirium slaying pleasurality
Humanity’s murderous enemy

Leaving one’s angers unguarded
Ensures personal destruction

Streams of normal thought
By fury damm’d

As certain as gravity
Temper’s terrible consequences

***

Whenever antagonistic divison consumes
From decisions refrain

Letters written in ire
Set on fire

Because anger boomerangs woundingly
Preclude speaking harshly


3:8
Character

Cultivate modesty in prosperity,
Dignity in adversity

Unfailing, universal, inspirational thoughtfulness
Builds excuisite character

As silversmiths remove impurities
Improve oneself meticulously

Cherishing perfection catches excellence
Pursuing glory, fame

***

Tho’ riches lost recoupable
Grace never returns

Keep sorrows from friends
Weakness from foes

As soil colours water
Character resembles associates
