I sit at my old computer,
and type out a line or two.
Then I hit the backspace button,
and start on this poem anew.
I look into the book of thesaurus,
to find a word that will brightly shine.
Then I enter it into this telling poem,
but still canít make it rhyme.
I read the Bible for inspiration,
until I find a stirring verse.
Then I inserted it on my poetry page,
but it only makes the rhyming worse.
I think about the day before me,
the beauty of God is all around.
Then I carve a picture with my words,
but the timing needs to be whittled down.
I thought about the night before,
and I wrote about that one falling star.
Then it looked like this poem came alive,
but the meter seemed like a sleeping car.
I go online to the rhyming site,
and look to see what words will match.
Then it searches for all the variations,
but there are no rhymes for me to hatch.
I try to come up with the correct form,
and I think and think and think.
Then I put my thoughts down on paper,
but me thinks this poem will stink.
I am my own worst foe and critic,
and I need a poetry trouble shooter.
I know the reason I canít find any rhymes,
is that there are none left in this computer!
