Unused Talent

It was said to discourage
"You're wasting your time"
But one shouldn't listen-
Lock the door of one's mind

The muse doesn't visit
The pen doesn't write
The locked door of the mind
Stays bolted so tight

To let someone discourage
To me it appears-
You weren't wasting your time
Like you're wasting your years
