My dad told me this was a waste of my time.
I plant the tripod and plug in the mic.
I’m still offended, but in the video I look fine.
Post the results, hankering for a like.
Will I make it on Youtube?
I don’t know.
I put in time and effort but it just doesn’t show.
Film a new video, varying my content.
Adobe Premiere, new project, import media.
Write a new script, type away, indent.
Check facts, new tab, Wikipedia.
Was my dad right?
I don’t think so.
I’ll believe in myself even if he won’t.
Only this past year did I start this pastime,
Taking video of cars just for kicks.
Hoping someday I’ll make a dime
And silence all of my critics.
Why do I keep trying?
This work is my passion,
And this job is much more to me than a cash-in.
