Vigilance

Eternal vigilance is the price for freedom,

it is the price to be cautious of someone but no one.

Told to be watchful but never suspicious,

keep closer to those who will only seek vengeance.

Be aware of the person with nothing to lose,

better the Devil known than one with a ruse.

Never allow your sins to go creeping,

the only safe people are the ones who remain sleeping.
