The Dangerous City...

Itís a dangerous city I travel
       and itís not so far away.
I shouldnít go there at all,
       but often Iím there once a day.

I know better than to go there.
       Iíve said this so often before.
But oddly I keep passing,
       through that forbidden door.

I have a very best friend,
       who whispers in my ear
saying, "Must I tell you again
       to always stay clear?

Notice when you go there,
       that I never go with you?
Know ye not the danger,
       of what youíre getting into?

For many people have fallen,
       when they go to that city
and never make it back,
       from the land of self-pity."

   "He that hath no rule over his own spirit is like a city
   that is broken down, and without walls." Proverbs 25:28

       Officer Samuel Jeppsen #3751 (Ret) R# 140,

"Self pity is our worst enemy and if we yield to it,
       we can never do anything wise in the world."
