A writer’s inner fight

There are deadlines for my deadlines
Should I set another one?
Print the page out and mark it up
Is one word the difference between
Acceptance and rejection?

A house or a home?
A school or a dictatorship?
What’s the difference between
Ninety-nine words and a hundred?
Should I edit this another day?

The deadline was thirty days away
Now it’s six or seven
I could edit another day
And look at it again later
Just one more editing session

It’s due in six minutes, no five
A house or a home?
A school or a dictatorship?
What word will be the one
that would let me publish?

I submitted, good gracious, but
just wait one more moment
There’s another competition,
another expression, another chance
Do I start over again incase I get rejected again?
