Microstory 1529: Conclusion to Poems

I wanted to take a moment to reflect on these last several weeks
I wrote my poetry a little different than most
Sometimes it landed
Sometimes not
Do I regret it?
No, I wouldn’t say that
I think it just reinforced my beliefs
I am not a poet, and I never will be, even if I were to try harder

Do not mistake my resignation as some kind of depressive realization
I’m fine with what kind of writer I am
And what kind I’m not
I like prose
I always have
I prefer the video formats
But until I catch my big Hollywood break
I’m going to stick with my website, and keep trying to tell good stories

This does not mean that I will no longer be doing experimental formats
I will keep challenging myself, and my audience
In whatever way that goes
However small
Or unimpressive
I will keep making content
Not simply for the sake of putting my stuff out there
Because writing is the only thing I truly know how to do, and I can’t stop
