A Maxim For Living
It matters little what you gather,
On life's pathway, day by day;
It's the seeds you sow or scatter
That will flourish, on your way.
If you sow with love and kindness
Daily, in the deeds you do;
Compassion is not known for blindness,
Good things will return to you.
Take your greed and hate and envy,
Park them on life's pathway gate.
Down the road I'm sure you will see
All the good things that await.
Fulfill your life with work you love,
Take a little time for play;
Seek some comfort from above,
Live your life, just day by day.
If your life becomes unnerving,
Seemingly in disarray,
Lighten up your load by serving.
Far, far better is that way.
