Inspiration and motivation have abandoned me Why I write has become an unsolvable mystery In fits and starts - I wake and stare at the ceiling Waiting in the dark for the Universe to speak up Waiting at my desk for words to type themselves Waiting with my green and gold Faber Castell 2H Ready for magical phrases to spill onto the pages Instead, what do I get … Disjointed language and intrusive thoughts Who are you kidding? Submit! It’s time to quit! You!? Not the smartest. Farthest from an artist! Will I close the book and put away my pencil Never revealing the things I cannot find words to say To be satisfied in tucking away ... all that Agitates, infuriates and frustrates Makes me wonder and love the skin I’m under Makes me appreciate life and everyone in it I am grateful for how far I've come It's not always easy, but it sure is fun Overall, the world has been good to me And now ... I need to trust, hang on and commit For the hard-won, I won’t come undone
