God Told Me Today - Poem by Vera Sidhwa

God Told Me Today

God told me today
Neither to work too hard or play
But I never listened
And so got in trouble always.

I thought it was grand to work and work
But all I became was a workaholic
And so I thought I should play and play
And I became poor.

God told me today
Neither to work too hard or play.
Now I listen to him
Day after day.

God told me today.

    What a wonderful philosophy about work and play as it relates to our life. It would require calibration from time to time. Thanks for sharing a wonderful poem, Vera. (Report) Reply
