On his blindness by John Milton is one of the most inspiring writers in poetry. In his poem, he wants to expose the talents that people have in them but the people themselves envy others and they know nothing about their own talents.


On his Blindness.
When I consider how my light is spent
Ere half my days in this dark world and wide,
And that one talent, which is death to hide,
Lodged with me useless, thought my soul more bent
To serve there with my Maker, and present
My true account, lest He returning chide:
“Doth God exact day-labor, light denied?”
I fondLY ask: but Patience, to prevent
That murmur, soon replied: ” God doth not need
Either man’s work or His own gifts: who best
Bear His mild yoke, they serve Him best: His state
Is kingLY: thousands at His bidding speed,
And post o’er land and ocean without rest;
They also serve who only stand and wait.

He portrayed in the poem that we all have talents and we don’t need to envious of others because we are unique in our own way. :>
