Seeking recognition among peers

Wanting all the attention

And I felt a being beside me

And he ask

What do you have that I can use?



Preparing for independence as an adolescent

Wanting to rule my world

And I felt a being beside me

And he ask

What do you have that I can use?



Needing a Job

Searching and meeting all employers

And I felt a being beside me

And he ask

What do you have that I can use?




Discovering things are wrong

Wanting to change the world for the better

And I felt a being beside me

And he ask

What do you have that I can use?



Searching the earth for success

Needing all that I can get

And I felt a being beside me

And he ask

What do you have that I can use?



And I read in His Word

But Noah found favor in the eyes of the lord

Favor was called by Noah

Hmmm! I understand

He has what God can use

Thanks for sharing this poem. Some people may not agree , but sometimes the joy you get from giving is sweeter from that which you have received from receiving!

Yes life is all about give and take, sometime we happily take, but forget about the giving part. Great sentiment for the time of the year, beautiful poem.
