As writers, we fear rejection from the readers. Especially when what you've written could have been so much more. The thoughts, emotions and devotion you invested in it inevitably develops expectations- But when we fail, who is most disappointed- You, the reader, or thy itself, the writing.

You wouldn't want to disappoint thy now, would you?

Is a poem supposed to rhyme or not

I struggled to recall what i have been taught

Right now guts and this pen is all I got

Nonetheless i write thy down or i have naught

 

Hovering and wavering 

I dithered and paused

In my task to express, i felt lost

What was i lacking?

A driving force?

Should i be slacking?

Let nature takes its course?

But by then will thy be riddled in moss?

Still I'm blank as a paper

I could do this later

Ha! Later i say?

Neigh

Procrastination wastes every day

Now or never

Or i'll be doing this forever

So I grabbed my pen

Retreated into my den

Even with all i could muster

Somehow thy lacks luster 

Hovering and wavering

I dithered and paused

Yet another dead end

I crumbled and bent ; Once more

As i watched my pen fall

 

Sigh

Have I disappoint thy?

A poem that have not been completed

Is a person whose emotions had been depleted

A life without its purpose

Meaningless and worthless

A reflection of reality

In a distant surreality

Brooding in resentment 

Wondering in constant lament

of what thy could have been

as thy thrived in my dreams

If thy had been whole

thy would surely be among the lore of old

Sigh

Truly, I have disappointed thy.
