If Others Should Harm You In Some Way - Poem by Francis Duggan

If others should harm you in some way him or her in kind you ought not to repay
Just leave them for to reap their karma we do reap what we sow one day
And each wrong we do to another is a wrong to our own selves we do
But if in your dealings you treat others fairly then karma will be good to you.

'Tis not how much property you own or how much money you have in the bank
Though these things to you may seem important and may well give you social rank
But these things don't tell us the person that you are or what sort of values you hold
It does not make the crook a better person to be worth over a billion in gold.

So much emphasis on fame and money but there's more to life than money and fame
If you grow wealthy out of deception all of your money can't buy you back your good name
If by you growing wealthy others grow poorer then bad karma on you await
We pay for our wrongdoings in some way for all wrongdoers there's a reckoning date.

If others should harm you in some way you ought not pay them back in kind
Just leave them to reliable karma since karma all wrongdoers find
For karma they cannot hide from or avoid 'twill pay them a visit one day
Since what we do unto others to our own selves we do and karma will make them to pay.
