The Beauty's Dawn of the Climbing Aspiration-Heart
Pillar

Curtains

Was it enough for you
to be a child?
To be held in your mother's arms
or placed on your father's lap?

Did you have dreams or ambitions?
Was it enough for you
just to be by yourself
in the garden
or ride bikes with friends?

Children don't know Work
but they do have their role to Play.
And for me it was
sitting in my room entertaining myself
or being with the ones I love.

That was enough
to please my Lord
in sharing His Presence
with the world.

-August 2016
Coincidentally, after I finished writing this poem I went into the store where I work, and a lady said:
"Are you here to work? Or play?"
