Do You Wish?

wishingDo you wish the world were better?
Let me tell you what to do.
Set a watch upon your actions,
Always keep them straight and true.
Rid your mind of selfish motives,
Let your thoughts be clean and high,
You can make a little Eden of the sphere you occupy.
Do you wish the world were better?
Well, suppose you make a start,
By accumulating wisdom,
In the scrape book of your heart,
Do not waste one page on folly,
Live to learn and learn to live,
If you want to give men knowledge
You must get it ‘ere you give.
Do you wish the world were happy?
Then remember day by day,
Just scatter seeds of kindness
As you pass along the way.
For the pleasure of the many
May be often traced to one,
As the hand that plants the acorn
Shelters armies from the sun.
