Another diamond

Here's another poem that is in a similar format to the previous one, only longer. :P
1- It's
2- Not easy
3- To come up
4- With a good idea.
5- But who said it was?
6- No one becomes successful overnight, right?
7- It takes practice, and lots of work.
8- Making a song, writing a story, or inventing something
9- Is a wonderful dream for creative individuals to have.
10- That doesn't mean it's going to be fun and games.
11- It's hard to be original, not to mention challenging to compete
12- Especially with the many great minds that have all come before you.
13- With so much content out there, the garbage as well as the masterpieces,
14- Not to mention all the critics, trolls and haters, waiting to tear you down,
15- How does one even begin to express themselves in a way that's never been done?
15- Well, maybe you won't be completely original in your creative endeavors, but hey, it's okay.
14- After all, every new idea that came into reality was based on old ideas.
13- You can start being creative by taking existing things and changing them slightly,
12- Or even by taking a few things at once and combining them.
11- That's what all artists do, in the end. Real artists steal.
10- Changing something is much easier than creating from thin air.
9- There really is absolutely nothing new under the sun
8- When you sit down and think about it
7- But that is not a bad thing.
6- Stand on the shoulders of giants.
5- Can't promise you'll make it,
4- But you won't know
3- If you don't
2- Ever even
1- Try
