Not One To Produce Something Because Of Its Ease - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

I perceive writing as a craft.
I approach it that way.
I am not 'all knowing'...
But I do desire to be the best at what I do.
If what I share doesn't mean anything to me...
Why would I go through the trouble of composing it to share?
I am in a relationship.
And I want it to be a successful one.
It takes work.
And I am not one to produce something because of its ease.
Everything I do has meaning and purpose.
There is something about taking one's life seriously,
That ultimately makes the difference.
I would think.

Inspired By:
Mr. Duncan Wyllie
United Kingdom

'Duncan, you are 'something else'. I'm glad we are friends.
You are brilliant. One of the greats! '
