Wednesday Poetry: Two Masters (WIP)

Biblical truth
you cannot serve
two masters.

you’ll come to
love one
Hate the other.

The first, your art
your passion.
The second,
a means to finance
Housing, food, clothing,…

When your budget is tight
and you feel
you can’t rely
on the second, practical
“day job.”

Whether middle income,
or minimum wage…
Your mind and heart
will stray.

And you dream of days
When you can aquire
a comfortable living,
or perhaps wealth and fame.

And, your time and talents
Dedicated to your dream job,
your passion…
slaving away
at art
with all your heart, mind,
body, and soul…

Until the day
that you can leave
your crueler master.
