Find what you can give,

Your own reason to live.

Find why you daily rise

And keep it e’er before your eyes.

With purpose, seize the day,

Whether it be for work or play.

Leave something behind

That others after you can find.

When your life on this earth wanes

Let your love be what remains.

  1. Great Poem my friend. I thought about what you said with theological interpretation and I made this comment a few days ago: If you are a theologian, invest in poetry. It may help you avoid unnecessary diatribes and bring an aesthetic quality to theism. We have plenty of theologians. We need more poets. I have also written many poems myself too. Blessings!

    1. A great thought! Poetry forces depth through simplicity, which is what made me fall in love with it as an art form. I think we stifle Spirit’s ability to speak to us by trying to hard to box it and define it. My Daoist influence and Quaker faith help me to “flow” beyond that compulsion, alleviating some of the wordy headaches of my theological training. I’ll have to check out your work! Peace!
