In this river of life we make many a mistake

Few are fond of giving, many just like to take

Our faults and weakness we often like to hide

While our strengths we display them with pride

We shall reap only that which we sow!

 

Have you ever offered another the true love you seek?

Have you ever been slapped and turned the other cheek?

If you don’t live in accordance to the God you serve

Don’t expect blessings that you truly don’t deserve

We shall reap only that which we sow!

 

Every person we know often wants to live happy

So ignorant of our actions that make others unhappy

If you plant lemons don’t expect to harvest grapes

The seeds we plant dictate how our destiny shapes

We shall reap only that which we sow!

 

If you don’t fight hard and harder towards your dreams

Be surprised not when swept off by life turbulent streams

If you fail to overcome life hurdles and temptations fray

Do not expect to wine and dine in success’s golden tray

We shall reap only that which we sow!

 

To enrich and better your life, this is the best way how

Change your deeds and actions not later but right now

Start replacing your bad deeds with deeds that are good

Learn to nourish your soul with divine and spiritual food

We shall reap only that which we sow!
