Sonnet: We Shan’t Be Selfish - Poem by Dr. A.Celestine Raj Manohar M.D.,

Not single friend but many foes have I,
In life, though vast be world in which I live;
All seem to lead this live so selfishly,
And not a moment for others, they give.

And yet, they want all things to happen well,
Throughout their lives and God to be their Friend;
But ego leads them finally to Hell;
Their earthly road leading to a dead-end.

Some correct lives as early as they can;
Some do it in the eleventh hour of life;
Some take the risk of mercy from God’s pan;
Some sacrifice their life, living in strife.

Our earthly toil is rent paid for Heaven!
In God’s Abode will stay afree good men.
