Don't be A Poet

I told my mother:
'I want to be a poet'.
She said: 'There's no money in it'.
I never was much interested
in making money.
Impractically
I knew the need to feed my soul.
I knew that money could keep me fed and clothed
but poetry would make me whole.

    This is beautiful Gillian, being whole is much more important. would love to know what Mum would say now. Though I could do with a win in the lotto. Thank you

    I like this poem. It's well written, flows and I like the message too: It's better to fulfill your dreams and be happy than to have all the money and be empty. A very good write.
