As A Man Thinketh

As a man thinketh: so is he. 
We know this to be true.
For the results are what we see
as actions follow through.

The summing up of character
starts with the thoughts we think. 
Renewing our mind, the factor;
shows whether we’ll swim or sink.

The setting of our affections,
those things we want more and more
may warrant deepest reflection
as we’ll get what we want for sure.

Whatever it is we think on
has it’s way of coming about.
So rest your mind on good things long
for your thoughts will find you out.
