The Law of Seed and Harvest

We desire faith,
yet fuel the fire of doubt.

We ache for hope,
yet nourish fear.

We long for love,
yet reject nearness.

We need peace,
yet seek out controversy.

We crave trust,
yet lust after suspicion.

We yearn for light,
yet are drawn to darkness.

We will harvest the full yield
of what we sow, tend and grow.

Until we feed the needs of the soul,
we cannot know its strengthening growth.

The Darkness consumes all it is given
and takes even more.

All that is given to The Light
blesses the labor and returns greater
than what was planted.
