Work And Toil - Poem by AHO Speaks

Two words that are really twins
If you don't do one or the other, you can't win.

The gift of life must include one or the other
Similar to a spiritual definition of sister and brother.

One is ancient and the other fairly young
Both gifts from God like our earthly sun.

One is ethical just like our creative God
The other has to do with working in the sod.

Every gift of life placed on earth
Must use some of time to show its worth.

The birds given the gift to fly
To feed their young is the reason why.

Man does not live by bread alone
Planting of spiritual seeds and not atone.

Part of a harvest offer to God
What was given to you for planting in the sod.

One to have a spiritual reference
Practice out of goodness and not deference.

God's gifts of word and time
To be shared with others like bread and wine.
