Don’t be a shame of your home,
When modesty there and simplicity,
Do not be a shame the road of yours,
Which scattered with thorns on it.
Don’t be a shame of your anxiety,
In it heartfelt love and good,
Don’t be a shame of a simple work,
As behind that the purity of your soul…
Do not be a shame of simple clothes,
That just a powder of life’s waves…
But be a shame of those actions of yours,
Which brought pain to someone…
