I am afraid of being a cliche

Message to Readers

Critique as harshly as you can. I would especially like feedback on the second to last paragraph, and on the line about "corrupted hope" but anything would help!

I will erase the first draft,
There will not be another.
Undo every word.

I will delete my work,
remove ideas without remorse,
and shut down.

The corrupted hope
that my thoughts were worth reading - 
dragged to the trash file.

I skim over my heart,
burn the cliches,
proofread the dreams.

This has been said before.
This has been said better.
This has been berated by my worst critic.

Delete the belief
that I could be different.
Quit without saving.
