The question for me is “Is writing a skill or a gift?”
I muse on this and let my mind drift.
A skill is learned:
A gift is unearned.
If a gift is unearned I then start to wonder,
What pride is in that and I’m torn asunder.
Perhaps I’d rather have skills,
But education gives me the chills.
I wish I could learn,
For more wisdom I yearn,
And then I realize
The source of my demise.
A talent must be used,
And laziness won’t be excused.
We’re given gifts for a reason
And not to use them is an act of treason.
So I write this poem uninspired as I am,
And feel like a kid bluffing my way through an exam.
This week’s challenge I’m frantic to skip,
But here’s my humble act of worship.
Gifts are to be used and skills are to be learned,
Then offered to God as His blessings returned.
It matters not what you think you can do,
Just listen for God and he’ll give you a clue.
