Myriad colours of earth
Be the love you want to have
Or else realize the simple truth
Sooner or later we reap what we sow
We plant our seeds that’s why they grow!
Just be the lover or friend you desire
Sooner or later you will get your mate
Or you too will learn to give and take
‘cause No one will bend backwards for love!
Sooner or later love will reject
A haughty, selfish lover
Who thinks only about self,
And it will just walk away.
You will sit alone on your porch
Nursing your wounded ego
Or if worse, cursing your ego
That robbed you of true love.
