Not sophisticated..

I must admit that quite hard I have tried

To make my writing appear erudite

To exude sophistication in the content

As well as its delivery is my lofty intent

Each time I sit down to write, I fantasize

About creating a masterpiece that wins a grand prize…


When I try to describe things mundane

Metaphorically, my writing just appears inane

When I try to be deliberately obscure

My writing I myself cannot endure

When I try to explore themes abstract

Their complexity only serves to distract

Me from writing altogether, I confess

I get stuck, I cannot make progress


I get discouraged whenever I see

Impeccably written, flawless poetry

All I can manage is to write from my heart

In straightforward words, but that is not art..


I have tried to be someone I am not

And failed at it- I am left with the thought

That at least what I write is authentic

Therefore to my way of writing I shall stick
