God equips in the shallow
matters of trade and food-
layer upon layer of aptitude,
seeds sprout and grow;
time of reaping comes predictably
with rules He set of environment and
Many cross arms, view our neighbors
God has gifted them more,
it’s unfair.
Few are willing to develop the aptitudes
he plants in us,
the hard work of making the flower
what He has gifted-
the neglect, impatience with
feeding, watering, weeding
mundane necessity pushed aside.
