Sonnet: On Diligence
Howev'r your entry was upon good earth,
by Dr. A.Celestine Raj Manohar M.D.,
What matters more is your exit from here;
God knows how He allowed your earthly birth,
To Him each one is loved, precious and dear.
God hates the lazy soul, He made with care;
The diligent shall reap their fruits of toil;
Querying the Lord, only the foolish dare;
Your labor's prime for seed sowed on good soil.
Gardens can't spring forth beauteous flowers by song;
Cities don't rise from mere concrete, steel, fast;
The moon wasn't reached by dreams alone for long;
Hard work brings out truths hidden of the past.
No fool can do feats and pleasure derive!
Through diligence, the human race can thrive.
