Goodness Knows

Any misbehaviour

Makes our spirit sad

Robs us of our happiness

Going to the bad


It’s the way God made us

Created for the good

Not for silly selfishness

But living as we should


Freedom not licentiousness

Not anything will do

But recognising righteousness

The obligation to


Bonum faciendum est

Malum evitandum

Do the good and do your best

The road to happy ending
