All Of Our Deeds Come Home to Roost

I crack the shell
of unreasoning darkness
with my audacious song.
Rousting you
from the safe familiar nest
of your dreams.
Awaken!
Greet the dawning
of a new illumination
and strive to see the Truth
from the inside out,
for appearances
are seldom what they seem!
Take heed!
Brooding over unhatched plans,
gossiping and clucking
with self-righteous disapproval
or crowing over our accomplishments
will only get someone’s hackles up,
breeding misery and strife.
Attentive observation,
self-assurance and honest work
bring far better results.
Scratching for a living?
Keep pecking away at your obstacles.
We all strut and fret our way through life.
To thine own self be true,
yet fight fiercely when you must
to establish your place
within the order of the group.
There is safety in numbers
and a lightened load.
Alone,
you may simply find yourself
in hot soup!
Remember!
We can only reap
that which we sow.
If you put no effort in,
you receive nothing,
and naught of value will grow.
