I continue to be encouraged
By the responses I’m getting
To my poetry page
On Facebook

Perhaps it is merely
My ego talking
But the comments and likes
Keep pouring in

Of course
I’m trying to sell books
And so far success is elusive
But I have created a brand

There is a growing circle
Of fans and supporters
Who let me know
That I am touching their lives

And perhaps
That is all I need
To call myself
A successful author

And I will continue on
Trying to be more creative
Publish more and hopefully
Match my ego with my goals
