Poem

Do you want to be famous or good?

This question is crossing more minds today.

Including mine.

Social media makes it too easy to get noticed for very little.

Being good at something is a stubborn exercise.

It’s also a long road, with winding turns you learn to drive right over.

But you know you’re on to something just by the way talent asserts itself; like the focus dial on a microscope, it hones in on its subject with clarity and intense colour.

That’s why you shouldn’t let the tricky salesmen you’ll meet en route distract you with quick fixes.

You’ll know they’re charlatans if they alter the way your skin feels.

Integrity should feel like a cashmere.

And be available in all the brightest colours.
