Exercise Caution and Be Mindful

Updated on November 17, 2011

Exercise your caution in every business affair

For that the world is full of trickery

But don’t be so blind or feared to be victim

For there too this world is full of heroism

And times anger play with our feeling

But that doesn’t mean you can be cruel

And time happiness play with our feeling

But that doesn’t mean you cannot think before you talk

And if you compare yourself with others

You may become vain or bitter

Think that there are people

Could be greater or lesser than yourself

Don’t get yourself wrapped up in negativity

For that it will bring your life sudden misfortune

Do not distress yourself with dark imagination

Because that will bring you more fear

Reach your hand out without fear

Don’t hesitate or you’ll be missed out

Open your heart to the world

And be happy with what you have

Do not seek more than what you own

For that it brings your more pain

Money, fortune, and fame

Is not what happiness named

      Very thoughful and meanigful. It is always best to read the fine print before commiting to any thing and sometimes we are better off to be as we are instead of getting into something we can't handle.

      So true. We should be thankful for what we have instead of always wanting more.

      Good evening raciniwa and Ghaelach, thank you very much. @ Ghaelach, I'm sorry it took you a few time to read it, I wrote this in Cambodian language, I write Khmer poem too and I try the best I could to translate it to English. It was tough trying to find the right word to put. Thank you!
