The Snake and The Statue

No wandering heart

No lustful eye

This principled stone can tell no lie


Chiseled from honor 

Raised with virtue

Still the snake never trusts the statue

      Indeed! Sad but true.. Perhaps sometimes with good reason of sorts.. for some (maybe most) I believe the past will always have a finger on the future..
