To repeat another’s words

rather than my own

is the same

as wearing a borrowed hat,

or chasing someone else’s dream.

In order to change the world

for the better

I must be authentic

to do my part.

I am a unique creation of the Most High!

His plan .. . His gifts . . .are best.

One Response to AUTHENTICITY

  1. I was just telling my husband about this today… how it upset me when people steal my work (off a Christian blog, even!) but that the great master painters had their work copied. I believe a genuine writer will listen to God and share things in a unique way. I’m grateful for copyright laws, still!
    I had my word plagiarized, used on a website, and copied and pasted; all without my permission; all by a woman who claims to be a Christian!
    Regardless, we still should share what God gives us to tell the world. Your poem is cute, reminds me of how I wish I’d gotten up earlier this morning! 😊
    Blessings, from 💙
