They Like Doing Their Own Thing - Poem by Francis Duggan

That artists are many and writers not few
One may say to that tell us something that's new
And the ageing rhymer showing the ravage of time
But he or she will never run out of rhyme
The gifts we possess born of birth circumstance
The musician will play and the dancer will dance
The composer writes music the singer does sing
Of them one can say they like doing their own thing
Though many of their gifts never become aware
With others the gifts we are born with we are supposed to share
Some out of their gifts become wealthy and famous many times a millionaire
Though financially wealthy gifted people overall are quite rare
The singer will sing and the musician will play
And each to their own as some do like to say.
