Day 16: Working Karma

I offered up more truths
than anybody
ever needs to.
Asked for more truths
than most
are willing to share.
Methodically building
integrity and
trustworthiness.
Hoping for good will,
for others to
behave in a
trustworthy manner
toward me.

My thinking:
Odds are good
that if I behave right
then right behavior
will find it’s way to me.
