No Idea

 

I’ve no idea if this idea will work at all

I’ll just start typing, and if I hit a brick wall

with my ideas, then I’ll just try a different way

of expressing myself; I’m going to finish this, today!

If one topic is not working, I’ll switch to something new,

and if I don’t like a certain line when I read it back through,

I’ll change it around, till, something’s a better fit,

until I’m happy with the way things sit

If a line is something way too obvious,

I’ll work it around, till the obviousness is less

If I’m doing traditional, I’ll make it rhyme

If it’s free verse, something that makes it stand out as a good line

Just so I’m satisfied is my only goal

Sharing with the reader a little bit of my soul

Some go on forever, and some are short and sweet

Just as long as the finished product meets

with my approval; will I call it done

Thinking up subjects to explore; that’s half the fun
