Karma, I’ve been humiliated by some persons
who are not stronger than me
but I cannot fight them.
Their acts make me cry
about their humiliations against me.
They have had their ways around and against me
but I know you have a way against them.
Their humiliations of me make me cry harder
but I’m of the belief yours will make them
cry the hardest.
They have chosen wicked ways against me
as their highest occupation
but you will in due course make them
understand that they are their weakness.
In introspection, I remember you, Karma.
Come and build my happiness
on the unhappiness of my humiliators
who make the life so sweet to taste painful.
You are ever loving Karma, because
you pay everyone according to his or her deed.
(They humiliate me not for the cause of mine
but for their selfishness).
You hardly react immediately
when people treat others with good or bad
to challenge your potent powers.
You do not give up when people hearten or dishearten you.
You continue to push and win at the end.
You come after everyone has forgotten that you exist.
You do not allow people to get away with their deeds.
You serve to the world the revenge they deserve.
Let my humiliators get what you are preparing for them.
Some are already suffering your unbiased gift to them.
Thank You for living for today, tomorrow and forever.
Thank You, Karma!
