The Lucky Ones

Written by: ilene bauer

Writers write and painters paint
To give themselves release.
Knitters knit and sculptors sculpt,
Allowing them some peace.

Singers sing and dancers dance
To tap into their talent.
Runners run and heroes help
And practice being gallant.

Bakers bake and swimmers swim
And mimes demand attention.
Everyone has skills, including
Those I didn’t mention.

People do the things they do,
With varying success,
To get them through the day and prove
The powers they possess.

Some people never have the chance
To find their little niche.
The lucky ones who’ve found it know
That they have struck it rich.
