A Flower-Future

If you think of yourself alone,

A flower-future

Will not be guaranteed.

If you think of the world more

Than you think of yourself,

A flower-future may be guaranteed.

If you think of God most of the time,

There is a good possibility

That a flower-future will be guaranteed.

But if you think of God and only of God

All the time,

Then a flower-future

Without fail,

Will be guaranteed.
