Wisdom

Worrying does nothing

But stress the soul

Better to stop and think

Let go

Be smart

Do not act quick

Take a breath

Always prepared and slick

Never lapse on the back of haste

Choose the tide

For readiness to act is only part the race

Although said not to blaze

Don't be sluggish

But set the pace

So be slow only to failure

Have speed with wisdom’s shield

Don't be caught

Let the lure yield
