Do I have what it takes

Is it really a skill that I have in my possession
Or is it just an obsession, not even worth a mention
Can everyone do what I do 
Or is it as easy as accessing the loo
Can words be manipulated, manifested into something sweet
by just any person you can find on the street
Do I hold the talent to find the balance between fiction and reality
Can I paint a picture, create a duality
Can I compare and contrast, correctly using like or as
Have I acquired enough vocabulary to become a visionary
My wish is that my pen is never stationary, always flowing, forming letters, into words, into sentences
I hope I never have to feel a repentance for the work I put out
But let's not have any doubt
I know I can be a great poet, I just have to show it

All can write poetry but to master the nuances is not in the scope of all poets.
