Struggles

It’s a daily struggle
To write something so great
That once I’ve given it a tune
Everyone will relate

It’s a daily struggle
To learn that what I write
Doesn’t have to be a hit
Although perhaps it might

It’s a daily struggle
To remind myself what’s true
The one I need to please the most
Is really me, not you

You aren’t the ones
Who need to be told
It’s me I need most to convince
That what I am is gold

And so my daily struggle
Is something you can’t see
The one I need to love the most
Is, after all, just me
