To Pray To God Was Of Paramount Importance

To write good things was of paramount importance; what you wrote the literature with; what hand you used; was utterly inconsequential,

To admire magnificent beauty was of paramount importance; which eye you admired it with; the aperture you kept while profoundly appreciating it; was utterly inconsequential,

To smell the ravishing rose was of paramount importance; how you sniffed it; which nostril did you use; was utterly inconsequential,

To swim in the voluptuous ocean was of paramount importance; which hand and foot you used to splash about in the poignantly tangy waves; was utterly inconsequential,

To eat appetizing morsels of food was of paramount importance; what side of the mouth did you use to finely pulverize the tantalizing chunks; was utterly inconsequential,

To trample the venomously heinous scorpion was of paramount importance; whether you used your right foot or left foot to indiscriminately squelch the irate monster; was utterly inconsequential,

To sleep blissfully in the star studded night was of paramount importance; whether you slept directly beneath the opalescent moon or whether you slept in your enviously cozy dwelling; was utterly inconsequential,

To reach the pinnacle of the impregnable mountain was of paramount importance; whether you clambered up with boots or conquered it barefoot; was utterly

To make the mercilessly orphaned child laugh was of paramount importance; whether you made him smile by indigenously poking out your tongue or whether you
achieved the same by singing ingratiating rhymes; was utterly inconsequential,

To expurgate the disdainfully inflated bowels in the morning was of paramount importance; whether you did that hiding behind the conglomerate of foliated trees
or whether you evacuated the dirt sitting on the plush lavatory seat; was utterly inconsequential,

To remember the person you adored was of paramount importance; whether you did that writing eloquently long letters or whether you managed to accomplish the
same by chanting her name incessantly in your mind; was utterly inconsequential,
To wash your body scrupulously everyday was of paramount importance; whether you did that standing under the contemporary Jacuzzi of the five star hotel;
or whether you scrubbed your skin under the rustic waterfall cascading down the mountain; was utterly inconsequential,

To construct a fortified place to live was of paramount importance; whether you erected the dwelling dressed in immaculate shirt and stringently pressed tie; or whether you slapped granules of raw cement on the wall bare chested; was utterly inconsequential,

To assassinate the hideous man eater shark was of paramount importance; whether you did that by adulterating its mammoth slices of meat; or whether you permeated its satanically thick skin with a battalion of grey bullets; was utterly inconsequential,

To emulate philanthropic ideals of your ancestors was of paramount importance; whether you imbibed them by reading through exorbitantly costly textbooks; or
whether you got apprised of the same through experiences in real life; was utterly inconsequential,

To respect your mother was of paramount importance; whether you incessantly knelt down on her feet; or whether you hardly saw her when you were overseas and
cherished her in your every prayer; was utterly inconsequential,

To convey the most sagaciously prudent message to the world was of paramount importance; whether you divulged the same screaming hysterically at the top of your voice; or whether you were able to disseminate the same in mollified whispers; was utterly inconsequential,

To drink salubrious water boundless times in a day was of paramount importance; whether you sipped it delectably from the amicable champagne glass; or whether you gulped it ferociously from the lap of the turbulently gushing country river; was utterly

And to pray to God was of paramount importance; whether you folded hands and seeked solace; or whether you clasped your palms openly towards the heavens for
forgiveness; or whether you maneuvered them dexterously across your chest in the form of a sacrosanct cross; was utterly inconsequential.
