Promises made without consideration make
Dry thoughts which vie thereafter for a place
In the mind, confusion due for tangled wishes,
Ideas, those pressures which push and pull,
Serve to temper mind, body, nature determined.
Drives of the self perpetuate despite necessities,
The irrational mind set strangely against motions
That may in counter run to the grain of sense,
Where equipoise and balance are highly sought
To smooth all concerns, fold calm into steel.
