Give A Letter, Never See One
Updated: Sep 20, 2019
As I was rummaging through old scribblings, I came across some prose I wrote in late February. This particular piece was divined from revelation, a revelation which challenged my true motives and forced me to consider why I show kindness.
Each reader will interpret artistic literature personally, so I will leave my own insight vague. However brief a backstory, I still would like to share this written piece of mine:
Give a letter, never see one.
If life is in your words
And that is what you bestow
Your joy will be fulfilled
But if, my dear,
You write with greedy and expectant hands
To receive words of equal worth,
You are a tradesman.
And a tradesman seeks only profit.
Give a letter, but be content without one
For your blessing to them is your words
And theirs to you is their heart
So do be a giver,
One without pacts or grants,
And your joy will be complete
Not lacking in love
But fully secure in His own
Only then will your words bless
For yours will be His
And His yours
And it will be Him they cannot help but love
