small stones – April 18, 2016


everyone said
discover your gift

and so I did
honed it, crafted it
made it uniquely my own

then everyone said
market it, sell it
make yourself wealthy

and then I was perplexed
I thought gifts
should be given away
freely and with love

why the greed?

    I really love the simplicity of this. It is so obvious yet I did not think of it until you mentioned it.

  4. Wow what a perspective. Need to go and meditate on that one, Blessings Joy

  5. Ah a valid point. Like in the case of bloggers. They hone their writing skills by blogging and all people want to know about them when are they going to sell off their blog because if they aren’t making money they are a fool.

What's on your mind? Let me know!
