WHAT IS IT?

THE REALITY I SEE,

I FEEL.

THAT I UNDERSTAND,

I AM BLESSED TO COMPREHEND.

THE FUTILITY OF EVERY EFFORT,

THAT THE GIFT MIGHT BE

ACCOMPLISHED.

MY EFFORTS ARE

A MATTER OF VANITY;

AS A CHILD STRIVES

TO IMPRESS

WITH A MEANINGFUL ACT

OF IMITATION.

WHAT IS IT THEN

THAT WARMS AND

IS TO THE SPIRIT HONOR.

WHAT IS IT?

WHAT GESTURE SUFFICES,

WHAT EFFORT ACCOMPLISHES

WITHOUT HOPE OF REWARD?

TO YIELD

IS THE RIGHT EFFORT.

TO WHAT PLAN YIELD I,

WHAT SATISFIES

MY NEED TO PLEASE

BEFORE THIS DAY IS DONE

THE REALITY I SEE,

I FEEL.

THAT I UNDERSTAND

I AM BLESSED TO COMPREHEND

THE FUTILITY OF EVERY EFFORT,

THAT THE GIFT MIGHT BE

SIMPLY

 

A GIFT
