Good And Bad Deeds - Poem by RAJ NANDY

By performing good deeds,
Goodness is neither depleted or lost;
Nor by correcting a wrong by a right!
Just as the candle by lighting another,
Never loses its brightness or light!

But bad deeds multiply like a festering
cancerous wound,
Till one day it throttles and chokes, -
Darkening the very soul!

Life is an echo my friends,
You will always get back
Whatever you throw out,
If not now, one day you will realize,
With the passage of time,
Before your life runs out!
And regarding this,
I have no doubt!

    I love the design. Each stanza progress conveys specific part of the message. In the end we are called to generate positive echoes by the goodness of our actions. (Report) Reply
