Precursor



Thought is a foot-loose wanderer
She follows no map or chart
Leaving no footprint behind her
A master of mind-numbing art

Thought is a subtle deceiver
No man is immune to her vice
She must be diligently guarded
This charge of inestimable price

Thought, though believed well-hidden
Cannot escape one simple fact
She is the lone precursor
To every word or act

Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable--if anything is excellent or praiseworthy--think about such things. Phil 4:8

As a man thinks in his heart, so is he. [Proverbs 23:7]
