More Than Gifts Of Talents


It takes...
More than gifts of talents.
It takes...
Getting up from a sitting down,
With intiative to face and embrace...
From a kick starting of motivation,
Wherever and however it is found.

And it may be affixed to a critic's lips.
Or someone who despises,
What is done and how one does it.
But it takes more than gifts of talents,
One is blessed to be bestowed with.
It takes heart that benefits,
One who has a willingness to forgive.

Although...
Not to be forgotten,
And practiced on a daily basis with a faith that's kept...
Is an asking of God while God conducts HIS business,
In a thankfulness to express and address with each step...
That God keeps HIS eyes on 'yours' as you do HIS will.

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
