Not like the World

The world is tough,

The world is prideful,

The world is rich,

The world is flashy,

The world is glamourous,

But I am not like the world.

The world is sleezy,

The world is hard, 

The world is unforgiving,

The world is violent,

The world is corrupt,

But I am not like the world.

The world says immorality is moral,

The world says I'm not thin enough,

The world says I'm too white,

The world says I'm old fashioned,

The world says I'm not good enough,

But I am not as the world says.

I am gentle,

I am humble,

I am careful in my spending and live inside my means,

I am modest,

I am of service to others,

Because I am not like the world.

I am chaste,

I am virtuous,

I am one of faith,

I am of a divine nature,

I am one of knowledge,

Because I am not like the world.

I may live in the world,

But I am not of the world.
