Self-Control

The following poem is from the Shoetry collection. It is a nonnet, which is a poem with nine lines, and nine syllables on the first line, eight syllables on the second line, etc, etc. It is about the fruit of the Spirit: self control.

We possess the strength and self-control,
Might from within, to keep our cool
Not give in to ev’ry whim,
Feeling, caprice, and sin.
Po’wr to rise above,
Unrestraint, And,
Under God,
Excess
Curbed.
