The Inheritance

            The Inheritance

There’s nothing worth a flake of gold-
Two sandals and a seamless robe
To satisfy a peniaphobe
Who takes for something to be sold.

There are, however, priceless words
Of wisdom, truth, eternal life
Bequeathed to free His heirs from strife
Both now and ever afterwards.

This sum can never be all spent,
Subtractions will increase this sum
Despite withdrawals taken from
His final will and testament.

About the Poet
Husband, father, grandfather, and each title is my joy. As a youth, poetry was a means to express the inexpressable. I was attracted to (and still am) the beauty and brevity of verse. All flows out from God, and like a proper prayer, can flow back.
