The Hebrew term Musar (??????), is from the book of Proverbs 1:2 meaning instruction, discipline, or conduct. The term was used by the Musar movement to refer to efforts to further ethical and spiritual discipline. The Musar Movement made significant contributions to Jewish ethics. - Wikipedia

I am young

I am innocent

But I am spoiled

 

I am intelligent

I am learned

But I am arrogant

 

I am loving

I am kind

But I am not respectful

 

I am alive

I am healthy

But I am lazy

 

I can think

I can speak

But my thoughts and speech are ugly

 

I am rich

I am spoiled

But I am greedy

 

I am well-treated

I am liked

But I am not a good friend

 

I appear a genius

I appear a Torah scholar

But I am a stereotype of my own volition

 

I am famous

I am known to rabbis

But I am ambitious

 

I have a well-known father

I have a well-known mother

But I take advantage of it as I should not

 

I love children

I love to care for them

But I am overly controlling

 

I can hear

I can listen

But I am deaf to alternatives

 

I am admired

I am listened to

But I know nothing
