Know where to sow (a poem)

This poem was inspired by the Parable of the Sower - Matthew 13:18-23. Poem's called Know where to sow. Enjoy.

Sown and grown on the wayside
Well, it fell on rocks
Thrown and grown along paths
Trodden under by impact
Shown and grown in good soil
To reap the harvest of toil
Rooted in filth and guilt
Stemming from temptation
Leaving the margin of right
Nothing good for the receptacle
The rains were mad last time
This time, they made one sad
Good fruit was borne however
Through the nurturing of culture
Fruit from good seeds grew
Into yet another flicker of hope
Favourable grounds helped to cope
Into hearers and doers
If oaks from little acorns should grow
Then know where to sow
