Good for Nothing

Gifts we are given,
     meant to be kept
          close to the heart,
We hide in a closet
     to keep all robbers
          from taking them,
But after many days
     we bring them out
          to find only what
               moths left behind.
Once good for something, now
     good for nothing.

Jeremiah 13:1-11*

*hiding God's gifts to us in a
hole in a rock, or burying them
deep in the ground, or even
storing them away in a dark
closet...they are ruined no matter
what in the sense they weren't
used and enjoyed as God intended
