Use Your Talents!
by Radko Vacek
Age Group: Adult
But what are talents?
I don't define them the snotty way.
A talent is anything we can do.
If it doesn't harm, use it.
A talent is a talent,
So why not use every one I have?
Sweeping floors is just as much one
As the handiwork of a surgeon.
Not everyone can stand and sweep.
I've done many things,
Using many of my talents,
Yes, worked as a professional,
Yes, taught at a university,
But no less swept floors,
Changed adult diapers,
Worked as a farm hand
Alongside from Mexico,
Worked as a parts handler
In a factory, all in no order
Of time or importance.
I've used many of my talents,
Gladly! I write poetry,
But don't seek the society
Of poets. Why come to me?
I more gladly go to others,
Sweeping, digging, driving,
And in using my talents with them,
Find the blessing of not always
Being stuck with myself!
They help me to round my corners
Into the shape of talents.
I become a fuller person,
As blessed as the full moon.
All the tools and voices bend
Into one harmonious tune!
