Panic Station

 

This document I’ve typed up is ready now to post

but I’m not sure quite what it is that bothers me the most --

 

that it will be quite misunderstood because I’ve said it all so wrong,

maybe a piece meant light-heartedly will come over way too strong.

 

Perhaps I’ve got my facts messed up, seeing truth when it’s a story,

so I’m heading for disaster with some idiotic glory;

 

or someone’s going to take offence to something that I said --

so many different worries are now rushing through my head.

 

This ‘enter’ button beckons me – it says ‘Get on and press’,

but I’m in some crisis of anxiety I really must confess;

 

my confidence is lacking and I’m so filled up by doubt,

that someone will discover that I’m not entitled to speak out.

 

I’ll read over what I’ve written, make some changes then some more,

this type of stupefaction is becoming such a chore.

 

The button, well, I have now pressed, so what I’ve done is done

I’ll continually worry that I’ve just upset someone.

 

The feeling will then linger until the whole process starts again

but I really do love writing and have no plans to abstain.
