True love and prosperity ….
Gateway to emotional maturity
The mother of all earthly joy ….
A gift no one can destroy …
We may think we have same
But not even economic fame
Can allow you to win this game
For many an illusive frame …
It means having a real handle
On ones feelings in reality ….
The ultimate test of maturity
Gateway to that authority …
When you get easily upset ….
Such can fail that acid test ….
Instead smile at the storm
And still remain secure & calm
Control of ones emotion ….
Can defuse many a contention
It allows for real control …
Embracing prosperity the goal
Often we take views personally
Instead of relating objectively
An opinion is not always fact …
Although same may be on track
The threshold is often higher
Much more than a mere desire
Processing views as if a product
Let this influence our conduct …
Strive to be prosperous …
Let same be your only focus
Avoid getting an emotional scar
As this is not the real star ….
For example a sexual encounter
May just be a stimulator …
To achieving real togetherness
The true goal of life’s success
Carrying undue baggage
Is an unwanted package
Sinking a new friendship …
Even stifling a new relationship
A relationship is like a mystery
Not for folks of poor love history
Those who call self an “Incel” …
He who feels rejected … is hell
Incels are involuntary celibate
By choice such is deliberate
They feel shunned by girls ….
Women not viewed as pearls
Do not see sex as just an act
Only worthy of mental attack
Instead see it as a great activity
Akin to a gateway to prosperity
You enter relationship half-bake
Do not complain of heartbreak
Strive for emotional maturity …
The ticket to true prosperity …
Ah, ah ah ….
