Come On...Snap Out Of It

Have you ever been confronted,
By those giving their unsolicited advice.
As to what they believe you should do...
With 'your' life.

And 'if' you show them clues,
You can do anything you choose...
The choice you decide to make,
Makes them baffled and confused.

~You look like a minister and speak like a DJ.
I can see you as actor.
You have a presence for the stage.
You should be a banker. No a laywer. No a teacher...
That's it.
You should be in a classroom.
A teacher position suits you and fits.~

'I don't want to be none of that.
A writer I am.
That is what I've picked! '

~A what?
A who?
Come on...
Snap out of it.

Few writers are famous.
And those who are barely eat.
You can't be serious about that at all.~

'I am going to write 'poetry'.
Hey...that's me.'

~A 'whaterery'?
How SWEET! ~
