Things to Give Away
I put my willful independence into a box
with my casual commitment,
add measured generosity and faithless worry,
stuff in my careless reverence,
thoughtlessness, ingratitude and pride.
Struggling to close it, I lean against the sides,
press down the top,
and tape it tightly with resolve.
God receives this heavy, unsightly gift
so gladly that I cannot doubt
His goodness nor His grace.
