Chance… #OctPoWriMo2018 #Day 31

I am just not good enough!

That’s what I tell myself.

Would I pass advice like this,

To anybody else?

Perhaps, I need to step back a bit,

And have a careful look.

Of all the words I’ve had to say,

Enough to write a book.

I’ve written of encouragement.

I’ve written about life.

I’ve written about my trust in God.

I’ve even written about my wife.

So, why is it so hard for me,

To just give me the chance?

I don’t treat others in this way.

I’m just caught in this dance.

One of my own making,

Or maybe, a trap I set for me.

False hope in believing,

But, my words did set me free.

In this, I must admit at last,

Not many years ago,

The words I wrote

They healed my heart.

God taught me to let go.

    1. It’s true! I wrote this last week, and needed it to be my last poem for OctPoWriMo…. I’m going to publish a book of poetry on Amazon. That’s what this poem was for me… I’m not getting any younger… ;-))) I’m glad you liked it! Thank you!
