Purple's Platitudes

nothing but words …


08 April 2014



yes, given less, but given still,

the choice is mine to make,

entrusted with, do what I will,

the risk is mine to take.


Or risk it not, safe in the ground,

the hidden won’t be found,

whatever’s entrusted to me,

I’ll keep it safe, you’ll see.


What they’ve been given, others use,

it grows and multiplies,

their faithfulness will be approved,

my faithlessness despised.


Talents are given many forms,

the lesson is quite clear,

to use, to share, should be the norm,

not hidden out of fear.
