If You Perform Good Deeds - Poem by Francis Duggan

If you perform good deeds good will be your due
For what goes around comes around happens for to be true
The criminal may profit from his or her crime
But if the law does not catch up with them Karma will in time
If good things you do good in return you receive
On such a life philosophy i for one in do believe
If the law does not catch up with you Karma will one day
This is how life works and it will always work in this way
If you do wrong to others you will have some price to pay
If not to human law then to Karma does only seem true to say
You are helping to make the World better to live in by the good that you do
But how you choose for to live your life it is all up to you
And if you are always willing for to help one of helping in need
For your future good Karma you are planting the seed.
