The Harvest

Things aren’t always as they seem.
Sometimes we see, sometimes we dream.
Purpose means an aim, a goal,
a reason for our undying soul.
Amid the turmoil and the pain,
We ask for just one refrain:
“Move with the punches.”
That’s what God said.
“Be careful by whom you are led.
“Remember well the lessons learned.
“The harvest reaped is the one you earn.”

“Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.” (Galatians 6:7)
