Bad Things Can’t Happen to Good People

Bad Things Can’t Happen to Good People

A Poem by AiR

Why do bad things happen to good people?
Why does suffering come to the weak and feeble?
Misery doesn't come to us simply
Whatever fruit we plant, will grow on the tree
Why do we see good people suffer?
They pray to God, but are denied supper 
The result is not God's decree
It's a Universal Law, you will soon agree
The bad you do, comes back to you
As you sow, so shall you reap
If you want apples, you must plant apples 
Otherwise, there will be no apples on your tree
People think that it is God in heaven 
Giving cruel orders from cloud eleven 
Is it true that God is passing the decree? 
Or is it a law unfolding that we see?
The law is known as the Law of Karma
It is this law that causes all the drama!
If you understand the law, you will agree 
That apples can't grow on a mango tree!
 
There will be no reaction, unless there is an action 
There will be no effect unless there is a cause 
Apples or mangoes, be it one, two or three
What we plant, is what we will see on the tree
But why do bad things happen to good people? 
We hear people question, but the logic is feeble 
It is expecting apples to appear on a mango tree 
But how can apples grow on a mango tree?
Is this something difficult  to understand?
Is it unique or does it happen in every land? 
The fruit you plant, will be the fruit on the tree 
Just like there are mangoes on every mango tree
Have you seen a new born suffer?
Some are born fortunate, the circumstances differ 
There must be a reason, you will agree 
Otherwise, why would this ever be?
We may not remember, but the law remembers the past 
Whatever we do, will be counted till the last
Good or bad, whatever be the degree
Will appear as the fruit that we planted on the tree
Some people question, “Is there life after death?”
Or is the story over when we take our last breath?
When we watch some children born with a smile and glee 
We realize this is no magic, nothing happens for free
 All this happens by a law on earth
There is no luck or chance involved in our birth 
Fortunate or unfortunate, doesn't come randomly
The circumstances of our birth don't just happen simply
Who is in charge, who controls our destiny?
Is there a power that is issuing the decree?
Happy or unhappy, can prayer make it be?
Or is it our own deeds that will make our destiny?
Till when will we live in ignorance and cry? 
Looking at our misfortune and then asking why 
As long as we don't realize the law of destiny 
Whatever are our deeds, our future will be
If we want to live in bliss and peace
If we want all our miseries to cease
Our life can be a jamboree
If we learn the Universal Law of the tree
Bad things can't happen to good people, you must know 
This is the law that exists in our life show
If there is tragedy, then don't disagree
It is what we planted that is appearing on our tree
Why do bad things happen to good people?
Why does suffering come to the weak and feeble?
Misery doesn't come to us simply
Whatever fruit we plant, will grow on the tree
Why do we see good people suffer?
They pray to God, but are denied supper 
The result is not God's decree
