The Problem With Making

The Problem With Making

A Poem by Hendro Smit

Never left unfinished

The problem with making
Why do we try to create?
Struggling to get unstuck
I wonder why we build and wait
But maybe you don't give a [placeholder]
Mistakes and frustrations
Don't shape our creations
Until we look back and consider a bit
Then it seems dull and utterly [placeholder]
I think that building and making 
Keeps us from falling and breaking
It comes for our hatred and rancour
Not to sound like a [placeholder]
But when we finish it loses that colour
The passion that made 
Many rose tinted glasses
It simply fades
And we fall on our [placeholder]
We struggle to finish
We work and we cram 
But when its all done...
Well who gives a [placeholder]
The lesson to learn is to love what you make
You can have what no one can take
Do it for you and add in some luck
And if they don't like it, well who gives a [placeholder]
