Essential Reward


After hard day work comes pay,
working expecting results;
most times this is nay.

Essential reward,
a good man should win award.
Essential reward
is diligence distinguishing dozen disciples.

Country lacking essential reward
never moves forward.
Many reap where not sown
while the faithful go
in seasonless sorrow.
This God forbid!

Essential reward
the peak of great excellence.
Essential reward
the fear of on-lookers.
Surely essential reward
should have the final say.
Making our deeds
the greatest need.
