Favorite Quote:
"All you need in this life is ignorance and confidence, and then success is sure." (Mark Twain)

I don't

draw pictures

like others do.

I don't have

the attention

the patience

the imperishable inspiration.

I don't practice,

I don't like this.

I'll never be the best

better than all the rest,

because my pen writes.

It doesn't draw.

The author's comments:

I wish I could say this came to me as an artistic epiphany. However, this is all just the frustration I felt after attempting to paint with watercolors in words.
