In order to succeed keep refining your works.

I awoke to a blank page
Looking ever so lonely
For it seems nothing was there

I picked up the pencil of my thoughts
And I started my greatest masterpiece
That a good night sleep
And a fantastic day could bring
This lonely sheet facing me

And as the day grew longer
The sheet keep getting lonelier
For it seems my thoughts disappeared
As written
Only to reappear again
In greater and greater detail

But the paper kept swallowing them up
And smiling so blankly
What did I do to deserve this torment?
I CRIED out
And still the words as written were lost

And as I was about to tear it up
This abomination of fiber
Started to caress me
With the greatest voice
I could ever imagine
Of my own creations

And as I sat there with tears in my eyes
I knew the frustration was worth it
When the music coming out of it
Sent chills all over my body
To the delight of my mind
So long denied

As my emotions overcame me
On pages upon pages
Of the magic that words
Can cast on you

And as the chorus faded
I said to the blank page
Damn it to hell
I got to try it again
For my blank page is never satisfied
