Creator’s Soundtrack — “it’s not good enough”

It’s not good enough to publish.

Maybe if I edit it a little.

Or sit down later and add a bit more thought.

It’s not good enough to publish,

There’s too much aching heart.

If I read it over later, and make it better, then

maybe it’ll be good enough to publish

…but maybe not.

It’s not good enough to publish,

Or maybe I’m not good enough to write it.

I don’t really believe that!

…but since I haven’t published it yet,

It seems part of me does.

It’s not good enough to publish.

I could work on it later…

But I have no intention of doing so.

What will people think

of me, unpolished?

It’s not good enough to publish, but what if…

  • I die with all my ideas inside?
  • Regret the stories I never lived out?
  • am never loved for my imperfections?

No, it’s not going to be ‘good enough.’

But I’m alright.
