A rant...gotta get it out.

i can't
think of a single good thing
about writing poetry.

why am i
so freaking hard on myself?
why do i torture myself

in thinking
i can write something that is
actually worth reading?

i read it:
the poem i've created
and behold, i think it's good.

and nothing.
nada.  zilch.  NO THING.  i'm still
waiting for a miracle.

please tell me
i'm not the only one who
feels they're unworthy to write.

perhaps i
was drunk the day i picked up
a pen and writing tablet.

is that it?
why am i the chosen one?

you gave me
no choice in the matter.  you
said write.  i obeyed, master.

ev  er  y
time you asked me to write, your
obedient servent wrote.

i lost sleep.
i lost friends and family
because of this...stupid thing

called writing.
and yet, i continue to
write, hoping...hoping...hoping.

to pen the

i hate it.
i hate writing poetry.
there.  i said it.  am i cursed

to never
writing another word?  will the
gods strike me dead on the spot?

no, i don't
hate writing.  i am having

bad hair day
bad poem day

Oh, I am so sorry you are having a bad poem/hair day...I hope you never stop writing; you have so much to offer to the world, and I wish more people'd pay attention to what you have to say! You are a talented poet, and you have a Gift that few people have! Excellent rant; rant on, baby gurl...I hear ya!

You are far from being alone, Karla - We all have our Temper Tantrums, Bad Hair Days, and Bad Writing Days. I think it's just the Nature of the Beast.

Write On!

Is it, that bothers you, the writing,
Or is it, that bothers you, the biting,
Remarks from those like Andy T or Ed K, or me,
Does not matter anyway, for those remarks will be still forthcoming,
For you do, in your own special way write poems that are quite exciting...
Keep ranting & raving, Ed & Rufuz

Bad hair days as well as bad poem days, are better then no hair or no poem. I often wonder will you understand when I write? Sometimes I'm not, so I guess I'm still learning. But the only way I'll learn is with a pen in hand and a blank piece of paper. Plus writing, brings an inner peace, which we all understand... good rant
Reviewed by E T Waldron
Great rant Karla, and I think yes most of us feel this,sometimes
after I poest a poem I think, I can't beieve i thought that was good enough to post!;-)Just one bit of advice. keep writing with the joy of doing it, not with the thought of any compensation for it.Relieve yourself of that burden. If it is to happen it will.

God given talent and He doesn't let up until those words are down. Even on a bad poem day! Still, it's ok to have an artists temper tantrum. I'm with you, Karla! Wonderful poem...
Reviewed by Sherry Heim
LOL, Karla! I never write anything that I think is worthy of being placed on the pages here, but I write is just what we do. I am not wishing to be published, so I guess that takes some of the pressure off of me. I think it may be more difficult for those whose dream is to become a published writer and have their books out there for sale. I never see writing as a burden, just something I do, like combing my hair...
Take care,

Ah, rant on. I have thought low of myself for this writing habit, but mostly possessed as if I have no choice in the matter.
