Fruit-bearing


This world is fruit-bearing
You are in this world
You are not to take any fruit
Without His permission
The owner of this world
You are to do your allotted duty
As a servant of this world
And you are not here to
Expect anything in return
For doing your duty
This world is not yours
You are here in this world
For a short period
This world was there before you
Come to this world
This world will be there after
Your departure from this world
You are not the owner of this world
This world is not yours
You are in this world as a servant
And to render service for the welfare
Of all inhabitants of this world.
