I guess you could say I'm a jack of all trades. And while it can come in handy It is also disappointing.
They tell you "Everyone has something they're good at" Everyone but me. Or you could take it to mean, I'm pretty good At a lot of things, But only just passable.
I'm a pretty good artist If you just want a sketch of something. My freehand drawings Still look like they did When I was five.
I'm a pretty good writer. But nothing of mine Will ever get published. I'm still at the point Where what's an interesting story to me Is hardly more than a short story No matter how long it runs on in my head.
I'm pretty good at singing If I'm in a choir Or singing along to a song on the radio. Because half of my tune Is slopping out Of the metaphorical bucket.
I'm pretty good at sewing If you give me a pattern. I can follow directions, Even confusing ones, Quite well. But that's as far as it goes.
I can paint If it's straightforward Without things like shading And if it's simple shapes Or large things Like houses.
I can cook If you have a cookbook. Again, I can follow instructions.
I can make things out of clay If they're generally simple And aren't meant to look like something Like a person, Or an animal.
I can whittle things out of wood As long as what you want Is a simple two-dimensional shape Or a very simple Three dimensional something.
I can fold paper and napkins Into interesting shapes As long as someone else Has come up with it first And put it in a book Or on the internet For me to find.
I can act If the character I'm playing Is pretty much just like me.
I can play the violin But only generally simple things And I was never dedicated enough To really become good at it.
I can embroider, I can make roses out of duct tape, I can paint nails And french braid hair. And bake cookies. But these things Are all simple And I am far from being the best.
All the things I might pride myself on doing I can only do Maybe as good as someone else But I know a friend of mine Who does it twice as well.
I'm a Jack of all trades Who just longs To have a talent for something That I love enough To be the best at.

Lilyas has dedicated herself to making our community a brighter place with her vibrant artwork and infectious enthusiasm for interacting with others in our community. It has certainly paid off, as many deviants flock to her page on a daily basis to let her know how much of an inspiration she is. We absolutely agree, and couldn't let all that hard work go without recognition, so it's with great pride that we bestow the Deviousness Award for March 2014, to ... Read More
