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.
