A most pleasing gift is piety —
it’s faithful without anxiety,
submissive and yet non-demanding,
always prudent while promise keeping.
I want to be that pleasant present
and unwrap myself with assent,
not bowed with denial in my heart
to grieve the undone good of my part.
I regret the loss through my neglect,
and worse my self-serving disrespect,
“I rue piety that finds no time
for good towards others or the sublime”
I seize the joy of my carefulness
and even more so my gratefulness.
As I am disposed; so, I am filled
with good towards all and Love instilled.
Thus honored and blessed to share the light;
I must be present and in plain sight.
I have been chosen to do some good
to understand the misunderstood
