Gone To Seed

“If you plant honesty, you’ll reap trust”
Aye, the seeds of doubt have been planted,
But such doubts are a must,
If wisdom’s to be granted…..

Seeds of valor, seeds of passion,
Seeds of equanimity;
Seeds that suit every fashion,
Of learning and acuity.

Leaders who sow such seeds of doubt,
Are welcome and accounted,
Than those who’d love to flaunt,
Are ones that are so vaunted.

Where honesty is a truthful story,
Tests one’s heart and mind;
Now enough’s been said of this allegory,
Dear readers: this truth you can find!

This is a really work of art. It uses full of figurative language specifically the metaphor in comparing leaders. This is votes 10+++. Thanks also for the comment in my poem ' The: Legacy of my Mother'.
seeds of love, grown with trust protected from winds of lust tended care day and night shall grow in trees that shall stand to fight the forces evil and times' peril to withstand the storms standing still

Good seed to harvest love ' When the night has been too lonely and the road has been too long and you think that love is only for the lucky and the strong Just remember in the winter far beneath the bitter snows lies the seed that with the sun's love in the spring becomes the rose '(west life) Can easily turn in to a populolar song frnd..see u 10++
but then what about the seeds of love not always-- one plants them with so much love and sometimes they never fructify they just fade and die away -10 anjali
