Maintaining Amateur Status

I’m no professional.
Today, I’m not crazy.
I’m super tired
Leading me to write, but
I’m not so sure that I’m a writer,
Just a guy spewing some words
More a hobby writer
Than some sort of Fitzgerald or Angelou type.

I’m making excuses,
It’s seventeen outside,
It’s the day before vacation,
The bus was an hour and a half late last night,
Excuses, all of them.
I should be running or lifting
I really don’t feel like
Maybe this is why I’m no professional.
