$ Work $ - Poem by Marvin Brato Sr

Work is never easy
to do or accomplish

Yet many wish for it
As something very light
That don't need burden
In doing a work or two

Yet many wish for it
As a means to gain
That worth a fortune
In doing so little work

Yet many do not realize
That work need not be hard
For as long as you love work
Then it becomes easy to do

For work if done willingly
And with interest that persist
Then it will be the only solution
To obtain a meaningful and fruitful life

    This is too didactic, something you should avoid as a poet. It attempts to preach to the listener instead of letting the listener discover some magic the poet reveals. You must learn to develop your poetic voice. Remember also, it is quality over quantity. I would rather write one powerful poem than a hundred weak ones. (Report) Reply
