and i haven't been able to complete a song or poem for months.
i suppose i should get around to piecing together the random snatches of verse scrawled throughout my notebook. i seem to have gotten hundreds of ideas, but never really expounded on them except for perhaps writing a verse or two. then my brain would move on to something else, something just as hopelessly random..
No, my poem is not about venting, or angst, or any of that. This poem is about the questionable validity of self-conviction. If you care to, read it again. Maybe you will understand more with that thought in mind.
Thank you much for the comment on “Where Did I Go Wrong?”. I wrote it sometime last year and I agree that it is quite cliché. But it was a very emotional time in my life - as far as relationships go. You probably know what that’s like - you pour out your feelings onto paper because it is a release, it gets it out of your mind for a minute. Then what comes out is terribly cliché, but that’s really only because it happens to everyone, it sucks, but it’s part of life. Isn’t that funny how things are berated for being unoriginal, when, if no one else had written about it before, it could actually be a good piece? Well, this one isn’t exactly one of them, but I’m glad you were moved to comment. I often kick myself when I read my old pieces - sometimes they just sound so cheezy! Thanks again for the comment and I apologize for taking an entire 18 days to reply - I haven’t been on here in a long time, but I plan to visit more regularly - I miss it. Feliz dia!
