What is within our power is to do good. Fate will take care of itself.
|DON'T BLAME THE FATE: a sonnet|
Do good to all but never do expect
That all will ever do good unto you.
Othersâ€™ feelings you should always respect
But donâ€™t expect it from the others too.
Selfishness is inherent in all men;
We must learn to transcend this evil trait.
Bestowed we all are with paper and pen;
Good or bad it is for us to create.
Canvas in front of us, in hand the brush;
We can paint life as we deem it is best.
We can build it and we can also crush;
Itâ€™s for us to pass or fail in the test.
So harken all, never do blame the fate.
Your fate is what you yourself do create.
