once it was easy

6 Jan

many years ago

it was easy

life seemed fun

writing poems was easy


now many years passed

i am self-conscious

of each word i write

i wonder if the reader

will understand

what i am writing


i once did not have these worries

i wrote how i felt

and now i am slow

about sharing my thoughts
