The Gift

Whatsoever a man thinkest
he surely will come to be,
it's written in the scriptures
for all who seek to see.

If you think bad and evil
sickness you proclaim,
all these things will come to be
for thoughts create ones pains.

If you thinkest all thing good
giving love to thyself,
all these things will come to be
for thoughts give birth to wealth.

The gift of creating thoughts
one part of earthly school,
a challenge we are given
as we start each day anew.
