Not All Is Gold (Writing)

Not All Is Gold (Writing)

A Poem by Damien Davison
"

Just kind of writing to my ego... No rhyme scheme...

"

Don't let the well dry up.
And by that I mean you must pace yourself...

Don't burn out,
Don't feel the need to share every writing conceived.

Take a look at some of your best lines, then be sure the surrounding lines are just as good.
If not, better!

Don't settle.

This is only, of course, if you decide to take your writing seriously.

Try to keep humble and stay true to the flow of creativity,
Not the thirst for attention and praise...

Heh, what a coincidence! I'm glad you enjoyed it!
"Take a look at some of your best lines, then be sure the surrounding lines are just as good."

Very true, often find myself digging through my text like dirt in search for a small golden flake of text.

Great work.
