The struggle of a poet like me. What if they don't like it?

I put so much work into this.
It's perfect, nothing is amiss.
I'll show my friends. What could go wrong?
You know, I think the list is long.
 
They'll hate it, think that I am weird.
They'll all leave me, they'll disappear.
They'll say it's bad and can't be fixed.
There are too many crazy risks.
 
But wait, what if they think it's great?
What reason would they have to hate?
I know they care, I know they're nice,
But paranoia's cold as ice.
 
What if it all just goes awry?
There is a chance, so I won't try
To share what means the most to me.
They cannot judge what they can't see.

Excellent, Bruvton, and, as you tagged it, very relatable. The rhyming was on spot perfect.
