Life, Well Lived, Is Like Writing a Poem

Life, well lived, is like writing a poem.
 And therefore it is hard, very hard.
A sloppy prose or an unintelligible,
free verse life would not be as hard.
And the effect would not be as great.
God is beautiful,
and the life that expresses his glory should be beautiful.
…Beauty and truth and compelling depth
come by painstaking thinking
and trial and praying
and self-correcting.
