A Final Write


Due to benediction,
that talent is yours,
and never shall
You do away with it

Due to denegation
you can still deceive but,
writting is in your veins
you shall never do away with it

Due to laziness,
you want to hide, though
it was the last poem,
but then again you wrote
because you can never run away
from a god given blessing

Due to recreant
you never wanted
the pen and paper challenge
but fortunately,
never should you derelict
the written word,
its in you!

For as long as you can inspire
For as long as you still aspire
You will always have this empire
And never should your write expire
