Sonnet- Men On Earth


Whoever thinks is great, is not yet so;
Whoever disregards a man, ain't man;
Whoever proud behaves, can't farther go;
Whoever thinks men slaves is not human!

Whoever selfish stays, can't forge ahead;
Whoever evil does, will reap the same;
Whoever stone-hearted turns is but dead;
Whoever makes men sin ends up in shame.

Whoever helps others is helped by God;
Whoever speaks the truth is God's belov'd;
Whoever duty does, gets God's Abode;
Whoever lives for God is like His cloud,

Whoever loves others are called God's men;
Whoever loves the Maker gets Heaven.
