As I read this verse,

I doubt that I could ever,

Write such words as these


The author's comments:

This poem represents how I feel about reading other's work. I love  poems, but I also wonder if I'm am good enough to compose them. Sometimes I just don't trust my writing.

Thank you so much for taking the time to look at my work and to leave such a nice comment. I can't tell you how much it means to me to know that my poems are appreciated.

I know how you feel. Sometimes I wonder if my writing is good enough to actually pursue a career in writing. You, on the other hand, are a true writer. You should never let that go to waste. I look forward to reading more of your work. Keep going!

Yes, it really does make a difference :) When you know that someone else enjoys your work, it makes your efforts feel worthwhile.

I think a lot of people will be able to relate to this poem, as self-doubt is something that we all must deal with at some point or another in our lives. And for the record, I think you are a phenomenal writer! I always love reading your work because it's so honest and straight from your heart :)
