To post or not to post
I’ve written it!! Do I press send? Do I post?
I’ll read it again, just to be sure.
No, it’s a pile of…I’m going to get a roast.
But my poem count is down! A count I need to secure!
Everyone else is so damn brilliant,
I’m not, in any way, in their league,
Just post the damn thing! You need to be resilient!
Oh my god, I feel the fatigue!
Give up the ghost! Give yourself a break!
There are more important things in life,
But then again, your reputations at stake,
Yet the perspective is, what exactly do you strive?
I’m going to post it! I’m going to do it now.
I don’t care, I really don’t,
If I post it, I’ll live somehow
But then again, maybe I won’t!
