Harder and easier…

So, poetry is harder than writing
like kissing is harder than biting,
cooking is harder than eating
or learning harder than cheating;
but lying is obviously deceiving
like youth is so fast and fleeting
as winners are won in competing,
failures a mastery of retreating;
and in these harder and easier ways
is bound up all we wish to praise
ignoring the bland, ordinary days
in search of things that amaze.
