The seeds we sow

They say you reap what you sow

Well how about that

Whatever you do keeps coming back

But tell that to the farmer

Who sewed the seed

Nothing but dry dirt

If he’s lucky some weeds

Tell it to the parents who lost their baby

And think before you call on karma

To explain it

Not every seed we sew

Is going to grow up

And not every farmer

Gathers in a crop

And the lord above who oversees

These tasks

He gives what he gives

Despite what we ask

  1. When I was young, I believed in karma, that we reap what we sow, but life has taught me otherwise. Too many bad people never pay for their evil deeds…too many good people suffer. Seems to be no rhyme or reason.

    • I was exactly the same and you hope that somewhere down the track those people have to pay the pride of their sins but I don’t know – I think it is guilt and conscious that means good people atone – people with no conscience or care factor rarely pay for their behaviour. Others who seem to do nothing but good get terrible luck. Plus I am a terrible Gardner and can’t even get the Woolworths free seed pots to come up so no – not every seed planted will grow up – life is more complex and risky then that
