I do what I love to do

I do what I love to do but only after accomplishing

The duties which bring me my bread daily, enabling

Me to provide for myself and my family,

And for keeping for days rainy.


I love to write prose and poetry

I enjoy delving deep on topics currently

Affecting humanity and even on issues

Pertaining to human sensibilities.


Visiting places and enjoying walks in the woods

Admiring the creation of the Lord beauteous,

The sun, the moon, the stars all so fascinating

And writing on subjects elevating…


 Thus, very much in touch with most issues normally,

I also pamper myself doing what I love to do frequently

In my leisure time mostly,

Balancing between work and play generally.
