some day
when I’ve mastered
all forms of poetry
I will feel blessed by the Maker
God’s Grace

God’s Grace
will be needed
again, when I hunt for
publishers, opportunities,

defined and how
where does it lie – in fame,
money or creativity
my call

my call
may be to teach
all that I learnt hard way
and there won’t be any students
Who cares?

Who cares
when publishers
call poetry a niche
and rate it lower than verbose
prose – Why?
