Conquering the inner world might make the outer world a little easier to deal with.

Don't make love for a long time,
you'll end up ringing your own chime.
Fail to practice self control,
your temper will bury you in a hole.
Refuse to control how much you eat,
your appetite will rule complete.

Let procrastination dominate you,
you'll never start anything you want to do.
Allow laziness to take over your soul,
you'll need a strong heart to break its mold.
Don't control your sexual habits,
you'll find yourself hopping around like rabbits.

Failing to be self understanding,
will make life more demanding.
Not staying personally in touch,
will keep one unreasonably out of touch.
Refusing to conquer the inner being,
may lead to accomplishing nothing.

Self on self.

I'm struggling.

My appetite is ruling me,
laziness is schooling me.
procrastination grips me.

The adventure
