Too Large To Thank God - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Take serious those gifts.
And talents you are blessed with.
So many are on a mission to seek payment.
To believe fortune and fame,
Is there to claim as a goal to aim.
With a using their talents and gifts,
As a purpose to get attention.
With no connection felt to the blesssings sent.
Or if there is content or a message within them meant.
They are in it for the money and the taste of the honey.

Take serious those gifts.
And talents you are blessed with.
So many are on a mission to seek payment.
To believe fortune and fame,
Is there to claim as a goal to aim.
And if success to them 'should' come,
They seek more to impress someone else...
Without expressing how blessed they are,
For the talents and gifts they get.
They are in it for the money and the taste of the honey.

And when the money and the taste of the honey is gone,
They attempt to hang on to those impressions they made.
Proving they weren't in it for the gifts or talents blessed with,
But for an ego to massage too large to thank God!
