It Does Not Matter...

Praise, Criticisms, and Praises
Men, Women, young and old alike
Offer us these it never ceases
Our hearts ever craving, and hungry for these
Are manipulated and controlled by these
But oh mortal man for how long?
Will you live your life to please another?
And your days to the whim of a mere mortal?

It matters not what the world thinks
For in the end they have no say
Only God is Judge of all mortals
And only what He thinks truly matters
So determine to know what He wants
And seek to discover what gladdens Him
For all mortals belong to Him
And in the end shall render account to Him
