I’m trying to think of a fantastic story

One with heroes and their magnificent glory

I’ve tried for a while, but I can’t seem to get it right

I can’t transfer anything to paper, there’s no end in sight

 

Only two paragraphs, I’ve got a long way to go

If I don’t finish by the deadline, I’ll have nothing to show

It used to be easy, but now not so much

No one will listen, they just say “non-such”

 

Writing isn’t always easy, for me and for you

It can weigh on your mind, can you feel it too?

Sometimes I feel as if I must get it out

It’s unending, forever, my roundabout

 

Maybe you don’t all feel this way

I don’t want to, I try to inveigh

Yet still I feel the desperate need

Some burning force that I must feed

 

Writing is something I love, there is no doubt

It frustrates me though, I feel the urge to shout

And now it’s like a journey, some difficult quest

Just to write some story, and try to make it the best

 

And here I am, here we are

Have I pushed a little too far?

I know I will keep going, but is that what’s best?

I will not stop without a wrest

 

So, hey everybody, feel free to leave a post

I value feedback and opinions, my friends’ the most

And for those of you who wish to read this

I can not explain my thankfulness

 

So, thank you all, what a deed you’ve done

I would appreciate, though, that you didn’t heckle or shun

I do prefer a kind critique

Just please, if you see this poem, take a peek

 

So, now, despite my earlier block

The words are coming faster, what a shock

Now I am back, and better than ever

I have found a way to write, and it’s clever

 

The pages are beginning to fill now

I have a way around the block, I’ll show you how

Just keep on typing or writing or just sing

Those poetic words, forth you’ll bring
