I know not what’s best to you to give
As you go through life from here onward
Words of wisdom as long as you live
For you’ll leave this world in high regard,
If you can keep all your thoughts on guard.
Because as we sow, so shall we reap,
in the fertile field which is our mind.
Where all kinds of thoughts in there may creep
Whether true or false, it doesn’t mind
For our subconscious is truly blind.
So plant seeds of abundance and wealth
Of love and kindness, of hope and faith.
Of beauty and joy and of good health.
For all these will come if you could wait
For the Almighty Who once has saith,
“Whatever you sow, so shall you reap.”
