Self Test


Do you wonder who is in control of your life as it is known?
Why do things happen along your tailored road…
It’s good and it’s poor.
It’s grand and it’s sorrow.
It’s to believe and receive,
or ignore and grow cold.
What do you believe in?
What do you know?
What is your strongest wish
and what is your goal?

Maybe it depends
on the heart you have within;
bitterness, non-forgiveness,
or an open mind and letting go.

What do you have about you,
inside and around?
Will these things you do cherish
go with you when you’re gone?
This material plane is practice.
It’s here that we should learn
what trading bad for good is,
and how life is not our own.

It is here on earth we find out
that trials are how we grow
into our flesh, or spirit and soul.

Gather all the greatness and
harvest your purpose.

Your deeds are how you’ll know the difference
between what love is, and what you think you know.
