Deprivation causes the desire, though not the skill.
In order to gain the skill, you have to practise.
You are practising to gain the skill.
You are practising not for approval
or for admiration
from the benign,
nor to defend yourself
against the envious.
The merit in the practice
is that you are growing in the skill.
The skill you choose, choose it wisely.
It is your future.
