Cruciality of Success

“Over the past few years, writing for me, went from the greatest joy to a living nightmare. Why? because I wanted to see my special sleuth have her books all beautifully published on the shelves. Something I know now, will never happen. That worthless dream nearly destroyed me. Now, I’m in a new era of my writing life. Although, I still wallow in dark reminiscence at times. I find happiness in my writing again, and do it only for me, never for publication again. The fact that you, my friends, come and enjoy my stories and poetry is a great bonus and so thank you. What follows is a poem which reflects this paragraph – I hope you like it!

I wrote this poem in answer to the following prompts:
Your Daily Word Prompt — Crucial
Ragtag Daily Prompt — Flush

Cruciality of Success

Success no longer matters to me
It’s just not crucial you see
As much as you strive for success
All you get is pain, and duress

If I still wanted to find success
I’d have to write only to impress
The enjoyment would be lost
And that would be a terrible cost

So, Success is not crucial you see
I write my stories and poems just for me
I share them on my little website
If you like them, that’s a bonus delight

So, while my novels may never be read
I don’t want you to be mislead
Writing them brought me great pleasure
That’s the only success I’ll measure

The morel of my story is this
Write for you and enjoy the bliss
Never worry about who you impress
Then you’ll be flush with success

Thanks for reading my friends and don’t forget there’s always plenty more stories for you in the Short Stories and Short Stories 2 tabs.

Have a great day!
