Once there was a girl who was presented with a plan,
Her master asked her obedience while she lived upon the land.
He asked her to be good, clean, kind and true,
He said, do unto others as you would have done to you.
He explained that she would need to walk the faithful higher way,
To let the light of heaven guide her through each day.
He reminded her of His sacrifice for the times that she would fail,
Through repentance and obedience in the end she could prevail.
He promised if she would be faithful he would grant her eternal life.
The condition that she endure well, refusing sin and strife.
He spoke to her of her mansion created with great care,
He reminded her that obedience was the path to take her there.
She nodded as she listened for she understood the plan,
Leaving her Master teacher she journeyed through the land.
As she lived among men and the trifles of her day,
She began to love the world and all it had to say.
It's offering of sin and selfishness pleased her carnal mind,
A reason to restrain herself she didn’t seek to find.
Indulging in the things her God commanded her to refuse,
She had chosen Satan to be her master, guide and muse.
Her footsteps ever followed where her darkened master lead,
Her mouth was ever an echo of the darkness that he spread.
At last her journey ended and her spirit returned above,
She remembered her premortal life clearly and her Fathers endless love.
Weeping in her prison she knew what she had done,
She had chosen nothing, over all she could have won.
Her story is a warning to those who still have time,
To repent and follow the Savior who does so sweetly shine.
Before each of us is a decision, will we choose our mansion above?
Will we live with our Heavenly Father in happiness and love?
