Plagiarism

When people are moved by something that I wrote I flatter myself, thinking aloud "I've created something really worthwhile here".

If so I should be thrown in jail for plagiarism, for I do believe that was God's original thought...

... when he was creating me.

    Your humility and wisdom is amazing, Tim..for a very young man! I see it in all your writings...awesome thought! : ) Don't you ever quit writing! And you're so right..as his children; made in his image, everything and anything good we do comes from him...just as we learn from our biological fathers! Annalise

    DEEP, timothy!! But remember, God does not make junk! And in your case, he broke the mold! (I may be taking your meaning differently from the others here!)

    How very kind of you! You may take it however you like. That, I believe, is the freedom of poetry :)

    You are thinking the right thoughts. Everything he makes is an original so I think you are safe on that plagiarism charge. Great poem Timothy.

    You got it right, Ephraim! We are all more like "innovators" than "creators". For to truly create something (in the original sense of the word) is to make something from nothing.
