April PAD Challenge: Day 14

somewhere is hungry for
what you have to offer,
and to deny it would be a sin
and a tragedy.

___Buddah Moskowitz


Believe that each of us
is given a gift at birth.
(If not more than one)

Our true purpose in life
is to go inside, find that gift.
(Often hidden in plain sight)

Carefully unwrap it, learn
how to use it wisely.
(Always with care and loving)

Then offer it freely
to the world in which we live.
(Especially to strangers)

Makes no difference if others
refuse what is offered.
(There will always be those)

That is their choice. And may
be the gift they have been given.

Notes: Today’s inspiration comes from Mosk, and his poem Bake Your Cake. His writings may be found here:

    Excellent, wise poem – I liked the structure of how it was done.

    I love the poem, and Mosk’s quote. Your poem reminds me of the quote from the Bible, If you bring forth what is within you, what is within you will save you. If you do not bring forth what is within you, what is within you will destroy you. I know in the years when I was too busy to write often, I felt very badly. I knew I was meant to be writing. Which is why I am enjoying these years so much.
