the mediocre talents of pen

she reads

she writes

she bakes

she cuts hair.

she doodles

she plants

she photographs

she paints walls.

she tends to children.

she daydreams

she analyzes

she respects the need for rules

(while at the same time despising the constructs).

she wonders

she observes

she snarks

she calls bullshit

she demands

she listens

she feels

she cares.

she has no idea what to do with any of it.

that last one shouldn’t be a talent

but it is

it’s not a boohoo

just a statement –

she’s a pen of many small trades

master of none.

I relate to many of these, including the last.

That's a great list of talents!

Never mind not feeling like a master of any; it speaks to not being done learning, no?
