It Is Said You Receive From Life - Poem by Francis Duggan

It is said you receive from life what is only your due
Though on some cases this is not entirely true
But what goes around comes around as a truism remain
And for us there is some price to pay for our ill gotten gain
What we put into life in return we receive
Though many on such thinking refuse to believe
To some to steal from poor people does seem quite okay
Without seeming to realize that maybe one day
That to this one known as Karma for their sins they must pay
What goes around comes around life works in this way
Though little about life i can claim to know
I feel for yourself every day good or bad Karma you do sow
Yet it is true of life that we learn as we live
And for to receive we must know how to give.
