Seed Thoughts

    Within the silent sorrows found in every human heart
    Among the multitude of joy of which this life has part
    Are known the secrets of each man by God and self alone
    And may be well compared unto a seed which had been sown

    Deep within the ground it lay... A planter put it there
    The ground held tight its little seed with hopes that it would bear
    In darkness it was harbored and later brought to light
    That the holding of its contents would be kept from human sight

    The pod began to open as the season swiftly passed
    The earth pushed forth its hidden grain being manifest at last
    Sprig began to turn to vine... More elaborate it had grown
    Until in fact it reproduced the seed which had been sown

    Thus take note my friend of all the secrets of your being
    For the hidden thoughts of yesterday are the ones today you're seeing
    Plant often good... Cast out the bad and let your garden well be seeded
    With grains of truth, faith, hope, and love as they surely will be needed

    And the Day will come when all the fruit be gathered in
    The harvest vine... the grapes of wrath will be divided then
    Shall we rejoice in harvest song as the reaper takes his part
    It will all depend upon the thoughts we've planted in the heart
