Be Not A Slave To Anything

by Michelle Maynard Koenig

Be not a slave to anything:




being right,


or of insatiable greed.

Within the Corinthians’ text of old,

I am allowed to do anything, I’m told,

Yet,  not every indulgence, you see,

is conducive to nurturing the essence within me.

Attachment is the shackles that binds,

A mind, heart, and soul, it does blind,

“Be not a slave to anything,”

Is simply the song my soul doth sing.
