Like many a strugglin' artist,

I endeavor to post just the gust,

composing what I'm trying to say,

in the most economical way.

When I read and review what I write,

I often consider it contrite;

I keep striving to do much better,

like a sailor in stormy weather.

Each thing I do, I try just about my best,

spending way too much time, compared to the rest.

Each of the words I use, makes me think of many more;

I then make decisions to prevent being a bore.

I moan,

and groan,

I reread and count each of the poem's words with a finger,

yet many, many, untried combinations still linger!

It is very hard for me

(maybe I have ADD);

yet when I listen to what others say,

I think I am "getting It" right away.

When it comes to the words I use,

I try real hard, not to abuse.

With each word I choose, I might be right and I might be wrong

but for me, this is much easier than writing a song.

Here is the secret of my very own style,

the learning of which, took me a long while;

I keep writing more words only while it is fun,

after that, I correct it and I know it's done!

It's like your third plate of rich dessert, at an "all you can eat",

making a rhyme factual and "Good Enough", is such a treat!

So tell me true and I expect you to be tough,

How do all of You know, when "Good is Good Enough?

Reply to #3, As always, MSG, your words are great to see.

Please share and keep them coming, if you have time, each one is special, even if they don't rhyme!

When others write something creative, other than "fluff" that enjoyable "Stuff", is just how "Good Is Good Enough"!
