Bonafide Bonds

When your thoughts and words and deeds correspond
With intentions that may propel your soul,
Your self will form many a bonafide bond.

You shall choose not to react but respond;
And life will turn more meaningful, whole
When your thoughts and words and deeds correspond.

Oh, more and more people will become fond
Of you when you persist to reach your goal;
Your self will form many a bonafide bond.

Lest you run away from yourself, abscond,
Mind to inculcate yourself with control
While your thoughts and words and deeds correspond.

To live your dreams and justly go beyond,
Practise discipline; be driven by no console;
Your self will then form many a bonafide bond.

Never shall you out of forlornness despond,
For answers looked for are engraved in your soul;
And when your thoughts, words and deeds correspond,
Your self will truly form many a bonafide bond.
