Poetry Thursday: Finding My Niche

FINDING MY NICHE

What should I write?
Who wants to read it?
Where should I post it?
Will my words excite?
Art for art's sake
Won't feed my family
Won't pay my mortgage
Won't make things right.
Still my heart soars
When pen scratches paper
And words come together
Like lovers at night.
I'll keep on searching
For ways to combine them
Finding a livelihood
And living to write.
