Talent is not nearly enough.
It won't keep you inspired.
It won't give you the confidence to get on stage.
It won't motivate you to write.
All it does is give you a bit of an advantage (initially) on others that don't have the same natural gift.
But that advantage, without hard work is quickly lost.
Therefore, don't take your talent for granted, do not think you have it made because you have some natural chops.
It's a gift, nothing more nothing less.
Wishing you continued success!
