Some people can find a particular pleasure
In things not everyone else can treasure.

A person may enjoy long walks in the park,
Some people like daytime, others prefer dark.

One may tend towards lying all day in the sun,
Another finds a board game is much more fun.

Togetherness with friends or family for some,
Being apart makes others feel right at home.

A group trip to an amusement park hits the spot
Or sitting around with others to drink and smoke pot.

A long drive in a car to far away places,
A motorcycle ride puts smiles on some faces.

Pedaling a bicycle, or pumping on weights,
Or running a track or gliding on skates;

Maybe playing a sport where you hit a ball,
But that would not appeal to all.

There’s not one thing that everyone enjoys,
Which is why they make so many toys.

But there is one thing most everyone sees;
That no matter what, there’s one who disagrees!

I am a fiction writer;

A creator of larger-than-life heroes of ages gone by;
Great wizards tainted, and those who resist them;

War between interstellar travelers, both on this planet and far away;
Alien races intent on the annihilation of any being not their own,
and weaker ones in need of a savior- as well as the One who becomes their savior.

Clashes with bad people and dangerous places, where only one can survive.

When you get to my writing, sit back, hold on, and enjoy the ride!
