    ELEVEN COMMANDMENTS



    Mind your eyes, don’t let them see

    Things pure souls should flee,

    Mind your tongue, don’t let it say,
    An unkind word today.
    Mind your ears, don’t let them hear,
    Unclean talk which you should fear.
    Mind your hands, don’t let them do
    Sinful deeds which will stain you.
    Mind your feet, don’t let them go
    Where your conscience tells you ‘no’.

    Be silent when your words would hurt,
    Be patient when your neighbours curt,
    Be deaf when gossip of scandal flow,
    Be thoughtful for another’s woe,
    Be prompt when stern duty calls,
    And be courageous when misfortune falls!






    Dear friends
    This is also from my collection. Isn't it nice? I want to share good poems and thought provoking articles with all.
    Regards,
    Pushpavalli

    Dear Pushpavalli,
    You have penned the words very beautifully.
    I personally find this, the toughest
    be courageous when misfortune falls!
    We get so depressed that courage just vanishes !
    Love,
    Chithra.

    Dear Chitra,
    Thank you for your apprciation of my writings. It motivates me to share all the precious collections I had saved for years. Even before the computer age, I maintained a diary and jotted down whatever I thought as valuable than a treasure trove.
    With love,
    Pushpavalli
