Who believes in me?

A moan - answered by Hosea 10:12

Who believes in me
I'd like to know?
Who can really see
What I can do?

As I immerse myself in learning
I can't satisfy my yearning
To be noticed and commended,
To be valued and befriended.

The reason I'm despondent
Is I feel a bit redundant.

I'm much inclined to think about myself
As an instrument forgotten on the shelf.
For a nature that's disposed to seek achievement
This fallow time feels something like bereavement.

So, it's time to cultivate my fallow ground
And ask the Lord to pour his blessings down.
