how does one find inspiration
in times they need it most?
it comes at will, and fades away
as if it was a ghost.
what is there to write about
when nothing comes to mind,
and though you try and try to seek,
still nothing is all you find?
who is there to counsel with
when poetic thoughts are slacking,
and all your favorite peers and friends
poetically are lacking?
where is one in need of help
to stir their mind to go
when emotions seemingly run dry,
and the words just do not flow?
when , if ever, will i be
in such a place and time
to feel again the inspiration
to write a skillful rhyme?
why is it that my thoughts fall short
and feelings are vague and few
each time i sit to think and write?
i do not know.
