Making the Most of It

That’s what they say about talent,
A recommendation felt salient.
And while it is certainly well meant,
The goal seems to be “pay the rent.”

What, then, is to be done
With the things which bring us fun,
Those activities our heart enjoys
Though, to others, seem just toys.

Do we NEED to make our living
Doing what, to us, joy is giving,
Or can we find a job just fine
While we stretch outside that line?

And if I may inquire
What about when we retire?
