The Incentive Contradiction
Some rewards are only granted
To the innocent and righteous.
When misused, their gifts are instantly undone.
They can’t be in your possession
When you simply wish to want them;
When you reach out as to grab them, they’ll be gone.
Feel the burden. Pay the price of
The incentive contradiction.
Your renouncement is the payment they demand.
By refusing certain favors
You’ll be readied to receive them.
What’s rejected may well end up in your hand.
