Work In Progress

I write poems.  
Everyday.  

Some are 
not great.  
I make mistakes...
sometimes the meter is off, 
sometimes the end rhyme doesn't quite work 
or 
is forced, 
sometimes the poem just doesn't make sense.  

But I try.  
Everyday.  
 
Maybe my next attempt 
will touch a reader 
in such a way that 
they smile, 
laugh, 
remember something from 
their own childhood 
 - ultimately feel something.  

My words may resonate 
with someone, 
somewhere 
for just a few minutes 
and 
their mood is lifted, 
their day
is that much better 
because 
of one of my poems.  

I hope so.  

My poems are 
a work in progress.  

I am 
a work in progress.  

My writing journey continues...stay tuned.
