Only Comes From - Poem by Francis Duggan

For to make the World better to live in
With your own self you do have for to begin
To be kind to others it is never a sin
The power to do good only comes from within
Any favour done for anyone is never too small
Yes the power to do good it is in us all
For the kindness you show to others karma you will repay
What goes around comes around karma works in this way
Those who believe we should live for self only believe their own lie
They live in poverty of mind and in poverty of mind they will die
So many poor people in life doing it tough
And many of the privileged minority with money and material possessions far more than enough
With others their worldly possessions unwilling to share
And sadly the kind and compassionate are becoming more rare.

Topic(s) of this poem: self
