Amateur


Amateur


I read recently that the word “amateur” means “lover.”


When I think of all the things that I do,

That I try,

That I do well.


I wonder if any of my creations would sell.

Would anyone want to hire me?

Would anyone offer to pay?


Then I think of all the things that I do.

That I enjoy,

That I do well.


And I remember,

I am a lover.

Perfection, professionalism, can go to hell.


I am an amateur.

Lover.
