The wise fool

Do I write to pass the time of day?
Do I write to receive accolade?

Is it from my need that I share with you?
Or is it because I care that I do what I do?

What keeps me trying?
What keeps me from dying?

Sometimes I wonder and come unglued.
Sometimes I fail and don't know what to do.

Am I wise or just a fool?
Is it vanity to profess to be Gods tool?

God said He would use the foolish things of the world to confound the wise.
God uses me and I am confounded so a wise fool am I.
