This décima is a response to the current challenge from Ronovan Writes, “Whim” in one of the B lines. I was also inspired by the idea of finding an audience for my poems and its importance compared to being true to myself (not that they are mutually exclusive!).

I write and post what I must speak,
Beholden not to readers’ whims:
I dare to go out on a limb,
Although approval I oft seek.

Usually results aren’t bleak:
There are many who understand,
And who will take this Writer’s hand.
There lives approval in my soul
Honesty, meaning, are the goal
Irrelevant other demands.
