Mainstay Minutes iv

In the writer’s lair
Locked in for days
Pressing pen to the max
No need for hand rests

Besides, can’t suspend facts
Gotta learn quick and think fast
Because see, glory is a thing of the past
And only a true telling can make an impression that lasts

So no rest, no fuss
Simply a switch of the wrist
After all, can’t help it I’m ambidextrous
And will do whatever it takes to secure my stake

Heard them say life is a bit*ch
But never quite understood it
Because over here everything’s bliss
Enjoying the fruits of taking full responsibility

But of course one is prepared to sacrifice
Sleep, sometimes worse
Connections one would rather not break

Fair to say, such is the way of devotion
A thing for some, still hard to fathom
Even when it’s clear there’s unwavering dedication to an art form
