I am not Just a Player

I am not just a player
but a tremendous achiever

I become a knower
of different species of life seeds

I become a sower and grower
of marvelous plants and trees
for the beholders

Growing of these plants and trees
is not a day's work
I toil harder day by day
and as the hour hand ticks
I count my blessings

Never be in haste to count your blessings
but be in haste to count your learning
As the number of learning becomes blessings

Slower it may seem but the higher you will go
Put your trust in the Bestower of Grace
to become a royal personality
and see yourself move from the lowermost
to the uppermost
