Why it Matters

Writing is the pair of stilts
That will not fit my feet
And words are the tightwire
I know I’ll never cross
But oh, to see above these walls
And oh, to cross that void

I throughly enjoyed this poem. The simplicity and truth combine and create a wonderful poem for us poets to read.

this poem truly illustrates how a writer feels during a writer's block. I read it to my brother and he loves it too! It's just great!!!
