Poem - Word is Stop

The poem “Word is Stop” is about one method of dealing with both temptation and negative thoughts. A person can tell themselves “stop” to short-cut the thoughts that have no place in the mind.


Word is Stop

At all times the word is ‘stop’
before an urge is set upon
those four letters instead of two
is the gospel to be pursued
this due caution in the face
of hot lust is preferred
because the outcome does less harm
than what could happen in lieu of it

even as the key is held
near at hand by the lock’s hole
the door must be forever barred
for the honor of all involved
even as the eyes turn to gaze
wishing more than life may grant
never room for dalliance
this is the way of the astute

an internal voice that is discreet
reminding all of their place
this frank refrain rings the ears
within the realm of boundaries kept
this is the path that caution takes
respecting those outside of bounds
always there to remind again
a stop is better than a bad go.
