Life Is The Soil - Poem by Lynn W. Petty

Thoughts we create are the seeds that will grow.
Mind is the plot we prepare to receive.
Life is the soil into which we must sow.

Physical force was once mental tableau.
Manifest power of what we achieve.
Thoughts we create are the seeds that will grow.

Matter is spirit in motion and flow,
Building expression by what we believe.
Life is the soil into which we must sow.

Depth of belief is the phosphate we hoe,
Reaping the product of what we conceive.
Thoughts we create are the seeds that will grow.

Thought, as the moving influence will show.
Self-aggrandizement is what we must cleave.
Life is the soil into which we must sow.

Destine our growth by our thinking and know,
Man by his thoughts, from himself does he thieve.
Thoughts we create are the seeds that will grow.
Life is the soil into which we must sow.
