Final Questions

By David De Jong
January 1, 2013

What did you do with gifts I gave
What did you do with Christ my Son
This will be asked of everyone
While their body lies in the grave

Skeptics laugh, persecution brave
Spread the hope of the Saving One
What did you do with Christ my Son
What did you do with gifts I gave

Did you share or everything save
Squandered, wasted or hoard in vain
Their purpose grown with every rain
Were they hidden deep in a cave
What did you do with gifts I gave

In response to Writers Digest – Poetic Asides – Rondel poetry form challenge.
