162. Contradict

Contradict a man,
He will tell you
Everything he knows
About himself.

Contradict a woman,
She will tell you
Everything you do not want to know
About yourself.

Contradict your lower self,
You will be happy.

Contradict your higher self,
You will be doomed.

Contradict God,
He will definitely forgive you.
