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
science.
Many cross arms, view our neighbors
accomplishments-
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.
