    I gave you food, to feed the mind,
    you shun the meal, but ate the swine.

    How often do we dig our holes,
    and somehow become thee lost souls.

    The mind can serve as the worst thing,
    when once, indeed you were the "King".

    Thus, I am a fool.
    I've forsaken His wisdom...
    And settled for crumbs.

    I learned my lesson
    by broken heart I now go
    learned it the hard way
