The following was written when I was feeling a bit depressed about my writing skills. I had not written anything for quite a while, and I saw so many talented sisters around me doing so much that one day I came home and wrote this. Life is a great adventure full of ups and downs and I wouldn't miss one bit of it!! :)
Talent surrounds me but what do I do?
Sit at my home and I mournfully stew.
Never to reach for these heights by myself,
Of grandeur such, yet I sit on my shelf.
A FAKE, so I feel, feasting on others,
Credit I take, dear sisters and brothers.
Oh, who am I, should I simply give up
And look back on this with bridled disgust?
I wanted something that’s greater than grand
Novels, and poems with glory to stand
In front of the crowd, no fake would I be
But can I, oh can I have it in me?
I’ll practice and toil and never give up,
Not content not to grow to greater stuff.
The greatest, no, but I want Him to see
I’ll give all I have for the talents in me.
