Pseudonym

It will never measure up
to what is listed out there.
It will never get the accolades
it might deserve if it were more popular
or commercially-viable. Or suitable.
Just because it never meets
the criteria set by others
does not mean it doesn’t merit
praise or esteemed as noteworthy,
a classic.
What would this generation know anyway?
And tastes, like fashion, change constantly.
The fact you hone your craft,
that you write instead
steadily,
daily,
regularly,
is the only proof that’s
needed defining your calling.
You still need to survive;
but not to validate yourself
before others.
Only to yourself
should it ever matter
for your Maker already knows
that you can write,
and ever will the love
come for that.

I enjoy solo wargaming and writing. The first caters to the boy that never grew up; the latter satisfies a deep desire to communicate. Cheers.
