Hark! There is no saint
Without days of yore
And there is no sinner
Without a bright future.

The best appraiser is the past
If wish to unlearn bad conduct
And is one of the best teachers
If wish to learn good conduct.

Though the past is dead
Still it carries double force
One to correct the wrong
Second to give us remorse.

So never recall your past
If cannot make in time use
If still we recall the dead
Will give heart-aching recluse.

Remember no one’s past
Is free of mistakes and errors
Yes! Present can certainly be
Free of mistakes and blunders.

That’s why wise say no saint’s
Without dubious yester years
And every criminal or a sinner
Has certainly a bright future.

Need is to learn from the past
To shed bad and adopt the best,
We will be in virtual heaven
For the life whatever is left.
