Writer's Sin

November 20, 2008
By Emily Feret, Beecher, IL

I had the sudden urge to write
But nothing came to mind
Writer's block
All dead ends
Why do I even try?
If inspiration isn't there
Should a poet put down his pen?
Or should he write just to finish;
Is that a writer's sin?

The author's comments:
i really love writing. This poem means just what it talks about. i wanted to write something...but nothing happened, and thats where this poem comes from :).
