I am certainly not a talented poet, but I like giving it a try!


Everyone has some talents,
Even talentlessness is a talent,
A sort of Zen Master mastery
Of a centering zero at the bone.

Some want to make sure that they 
Are more talented than you,
Or at least try to take away
Whatever it is that you are talented at.

Others—the good ones—want to
Join all the talents of the world together.
Together with all our talents
We will triumph.

Not everyone has someone
Who nurtures talents,
But as humans we each rely on our wits
To make it through this messy life.

And, at this, some are indeed more talented than others!
