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 just want to know
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.
they convey emotions that are raw.
but I don't experience any of those emotions.
maybe I'm doing something wrong.
for the time being I'll keep refining my poems.
because that's the first step to getting it right.
