Pad Challenge Day #8  For today’s prompt, write an instructional poem. Your instructional poem could list instructions. Or it could capture an instructional moment.



First is desire
It is said perhaps 60% of people would like to paint

Then determination
Many people are determined

But the most important factor is discipline
I am sure I need not tell you
Few have the discipline
To become the artist
To try and to fail everyday
Tomorrow to do it all again

These are the vestments you will wear
You will wear them until they are thread bare
The journey will be long
As long as you have

What you seek is a way of life
Often one is not enough

There will be much satisfaction… and frustration
The only way you will totally fail
Is to quit
Close the studio door
Never to return
