Sonnet: One Can Remain Good - Poem by Dr. A.Celestine Raj Manohar M.D.,

Though lillies send their fragrance up the air,
They never take the mal-odor from it;
And righteous men too spend their lifetimes fair;
God blesses them to remain always fit.

The world abounds in evils and vices;
A tree can grow well even near a rock!
An open mind takes in good advices;
Sometimes these days, forgets to crow, the cock!

And every day to some appears busy;
There is no time to think about one’s soul;
Some spend their lives, remaining too lazy;
Some never know their aims or set a goal.

Yet, time will fleet, no matter what you do!
On Reckoning-day, the Lord will query you.
