Men are created perfectly.

But some eventually become transformed

As they continue their livelihood on earth.

Those with Animal Courage are many;

They are the ones with moral cowardice.

Fine and general point of character is elusive to them.

They lack the courage to confess their sins to God

And face the consequences of their deeds.

They are too weak-willed ever to decide,

Just where to stop!

They should be aware that this weakness

Could easily turn to wickedness.

Their Greed and worship of wealth

Does beget vices directly injurious to others.

They ‘ll soon discover that the cowardice

Which they thought is safeguarding their happiness

Will in fact damage it beyond repair.

They better retreat from this path

Or head towards everlasting destruction!
