500 words

500 words
that’s what
I need to write
if I break it down
5 paragraphs
that’s all
500 words
simple

1st paragraph
written
102 words
completed
go over it
once
twice
trice
misspellings
grammatical errors
jarring sentences

one fifth of the journey
already feeling
disappointed
defeated
exhausted

I will do it all over
for four more times
to make up
500 words
is that really
simple

writing maybe simple
for you
for me
it is a painstaking process
I put myself through
for character building
alone

  1. Ahhh yes, the overthinking, overworking and redoing because we feel it’s just not good enough while it has been pretty good the first time already. I still have two or three poems sitting in my notes because I don’t like them^^’
