It PAYS to be Obedient

Updated on January 11, 2012

It pays to listen never mind

your age or size. It pays to

listen to a wise voice all the time.

It pays to put down your stubborn

ways. It pays to consider a sound

advice even if at that time it doesn’t

sound too nice. It pays to obey and do

what’s right.



Now I sit and wonder had I done

this instead of that all now

I wouldn’t feel like such

a brat. It pays to listen and it hurts

deeply when you do not.



Disobedience has so many regrets

only thing you can do then is be

sorry and sorry seems to be always late.

When all the hopes you had

Just shatters before you.



Your self will did not bring

you joy. Now it makes you

feel so rotten and bad. It pays to

listen it pays to do what’s right……….

      We live and learn and all make mistakes. Mistakes teach us many things about life as long as we don't keep making them. Voted up!

      There are those times when we step ahead of what is right and it is in those times we learn through the consequences and learn...

      Yes it certainly do it makes us want to be always right after, because some of the choices we make in life can be very harsh for us in the long run.

      Thanks Polly and Rolly LOL the two names seem to match up.

      Ok now, don't be match making.

      This poem is so true and I for one truly believe in God's chastisement!
