Act and Be!

May be I’m like an orange tree;

Destined to bear oranges

Ripe and juicy

Some sour while some sweet

And no matter how rich my soil

Or bright the sun

I’ll bear only oranges till I’m old and decayed

Or till my season lasts

And never beyond my time!

…..

Or may be I’m like the grass;

Green and fresh to begin with

Yellow and burnt when the sky turns hot

Or scarce and sparing when trampled on

But I’ll be grass till I’m watered

Or one day then withered

But never anything else!

…..

Or may be I’m like the bees;

Working hard, buzzing and busy

From flower to flower

Gathering nectar

Preparing the golden syrup

Of pleasing taste and health

For others always

Not consuming any!

…..

I have to play my part;

Act and be!

Never with the choice to be or not;

So let it be!
