14-Line Pain!

As I sit here writing, I'm wondering why

I ever thought it would be a good idea to try

to write a poem with 10 rhyming lines (sigh!)

It started out as 4 rhyming lines, but my

brain conceived it was a good idea for more, and my hands did buy

the concept, but now all I do is sit here and cry

My mind is a void, and with new words, I'm coming up dry

With frustration, my mind does fry

The only reason I can think of, is I'm a guy

who enjoys a good challenge, I cannot lie!

The face looking back in the mirror, has a certain look in his eye

that says, 'To fail, I'd rather die!'

And when I succeed, I want to write it in the sky

And so, to all my Booksie friends, I say 'hi!'
