just me

I missed a post and blew my streak
My count is back to zero
Although the reason for the miss
Has got me feeling hero (ic)

I stood my ground, it took all day
I wish I could claim stoicism
but fits of anxious rise and fell
each push against perfectionism

These rhymes all stink, I will admit
I’m fighting not to edit
But that’s the point you see, I can’t
“New Ben” eschews all some credit

Some of you won’t like new “me”
I’m tempted to say “sorry”
But what you like or don’t like – meh
please – make your view less starry.

Of course I want to be the best
I’m programmed to achieve
But now I need to be “just me”
full stop – and just believe.
