What You Can take Away From Here

He who holds his own self dear
With evil let him not be linked
All evil-doer’s(short-lived)joy
Is not a bargain that is good
Assaulted by the ender death
And losing his humanity
What use for him is property
And what can he then take away?
What is it that will follow him
Like his own shadow never parting?
Both the good and evil deeds
Which a mortal here performs
These are his property indeed
That he will take away with him
His deeds will follow after him
Like his own shadow never parting?
Hence novel deeds should be performed
A storing for the future life
Good deeds will in the world beyond
Bestow on being goodly help.
