Blatant liars


Honestly, I'm no fan of talent.
I second patience.
I second determination.
I believe in experience.
I believe in practice.
Yes, this makes sense.

Honestly, i believe not in you.
You, who bluff of doing what others can't.
You, who profess you are born talented.
You don't want others to join you.
Listen you guitarists !
You masquerade as talented,
Yet, you practice seven days a week.
You footballers too,
How can you say you are talented,
When you rehearse thirty days monthly?
Writers, comedians, dramatists and you academics,
Are you really talented?
Is it not practice that made you perfect?
Tell them it's experience that made you the best teachers.

I now know the reason.
Yes, i know the sense.
You are all self - centered.
You want us to think you are untouchable.
 So, we will fear this path you are walking alone.
All who disguise as talented ,
Do you know you shattered many potentials?
Who disheartened to follow your footsteps,
assuming ming its olny for the special.
This is high time to tell the verity.
The thing you call talent, Is actually an advanced skill.
Tell them, it was not there at birth.
Tell them, you have laboured to master this art.
Inform them, it is practice that made you perfect.
