poem about poems

Some times when I write
I try to work out of the box

But it never seems to work out
even though it was a good thought

Maybe its the formatting
or the ideas I pour out

And then when I get praise for a poem I didn't try too hard on
I wonder why the ones I put effort into don't succeed as well

I'm not trying to complain
I would just prefer some answers

As to why I get praise for a piece
that just appeared out of thin air

It makes me feel as if I haven't tried when I write out of the blue
even though they convey emotions that are raw 

But I don't experience any of those emotions while writing
maybe I'm doing something wrong

For the time being I'll keep trying
cause that's better than not trying at all
