Why do I always doubt my tales,
And get hung up on small details,
That probably no one will see,
That is except observant me?
I am of course my own worst critic,
And my opinion’s quite granitic.
Is my work really a mess?
Why do I always second guess?
I’d like to say in my defence,
I’m simply lacking confidence.

    I can identify with this, Sharon and I think most writers can...I constantly second guess myself. Even if a poem of mine is well recieved and people tell me how good it is, I still manage to find something wrong with it...As I said, most writers probably go through the same thing...very nice poem! - Tim
