Can I be proud of my writing skills

Recently, I was introduced to ficly by Mohsin. I found the idea a brilliant one, and was forever thinking of writing atleast one ficlet.
Little did I know that I would churn out so many (ok the many is only 5 for now, but I think its an awesome number to start with).
I started with a nice idea, but not so well written one based on teleporting.
Next came another nice idea but I personally didn't like the way it turned out. Story revolved around blogger and the sequel.
Another common idea but well written with werewolves etc.

Then today, I read this awesome awesome poem and wanted to write a sequel. But since the poem was so brilliant, I was unsure if I would be able to do justice in the sequel. But turns out I cannot believe that I wrote this wonder. Its just frigging awesome! I am on top of the world and you don't want to miss it. So I'll put it in here, and save you having to open another link. So here it goes

I forgot how to worry,
and never ran out of happiness.
I forgot how to argue,
and everything around was quiet.

I forgot life is unfair,
and made every moment worth living.
I forgot the word revenge,
and enemies ceased to exist.

I forgot dreams are’nt real,
and lived in blissful fiction.
I forgot how to complain,
and dissatisfaction vanished.

I forgot that I’m human,
and work finished in a jiffy.
I forgot that I’m a slave,
and masters never lasted.

I forgot to have expectations,
and life became numb.
I forgot feelings are real,
and oceans never flowed.

I forgot how to breathe,
and life became heavenly.

and if you want to rate it, you can do it here.
