    I wonder if there are times,
    That poets doubt their work,
    Ever feeling as if it could do much more,
    And feeling clueless as to how to go about.
    How to bring about that vision,
    That you saw before you hit the page,
    How to express so creatively,
    That joy, hurt and rage.
    To put it in a neat story,
    So that others can catch the drift…
    Essential for them because,
    The purpose of my words is to uplift.
    How to say it,
    How to word it,
    Because I’m not only writing for one,
    I have accepted that challenge,
    And I feel as if my work is never done…

    I agree with gempis, you conveyed that feeling of not quite being about to word what is in the mind. Well done poet.
