Favorite Quote:
"Nobody wins by playin' small, Remember who you really are, Fearless and beautiful..." RuPaul - "Champion"

Waste more paper
Throw it away
Thoughts try to flood my mind
But something’s blocking them
What is it called?
Ignorance? Absent mindedness?
One of them, not sure which
Blank mind
Empty words
Crumble up another
And throw it away

The author's comments:
This poem speaks of the many attempts that I went through just to create something, but not what I truly wanted to achieve. I think many people would be able to connect with it because writer's block is something one cannot avoid.

I really liked the poem. And i for one also understand the feeling of writers block.
