A world of inspiration
With happenings all around
Why is it then it's left me
Not a grain of it be found?

It's ever so allusive
It just seems to flee from me
My thoughts are just plain void of
Life's creativity

The passion still does surface
Leaves a burning in my mind
Then a gentle wind blows through
And my thoughts are unrefined

I've been so uninspired
I just cannot seem to write
All those thoughts that enter in
Once again seem to take flight

I need some inspiration
Need a mind that's clear and free
I sit in desperation
And I'm bended on one knee

BEGGING FOR INSPIRATION!


<*\\\><    

I know not what the future holds,
but I know Who holds the future.

I don't question YOUR existance - GOD

I know how this goes. I can't seem to write more than one poem every few months. It sucks.

If ya want a challenge, then write a poem using the line from your signature-"I don't question YOUR existance-God."

I think we have all been here before, me almost all the time.   I loved the poem.  One thing about the title though, "where for" is not actualy a question of where, its a question of why, just thought you might like to know.  Anyway, great writing.

No inspiration?  Void of creativity?
If that's where this neat write came from, I wouldn't worry about it, LOL!
Great stuff!

Elizabeth, I think the last one I wrote was around November. It seems like forever ago.
Thanks, I will take that into consideration and see if anything comes out of it.  

Keith, thanks! Actually I didn't know that, so I learned something new.   I write very rarely, though I'd like to write a lot more than that. LOL

Charisma I'm not sure. Just trying to see if I could write about no inspiration. LOL
It's been a long time. Thanks  

Angel anytime!! Thanks girl  

Victoria I'm glad you enjoyed it. Thank you for reading!

Sven thank you! Though I don't think it's back. It's been driving me nuts to write something, so I sat down and did this. But as for that inspiration, I don't think it's back yet. The brain is still blank and void.

LOL Lary. I thank you much!

We'll see Bonnie! LOL  I certainly know the inspiration for the inspirational is not here.

Lately, the daily grind has ground down the fine edge of inspiration...I'm tired. And can't think...YOU did great with this..you were inspired!! LOL

Denise, seems more than a few are like us, uninspired. LOL

Deer, I know. I had you in mind as well when I wrote this. Knowing how inspired we both have been. If I can do it, so can you. Write about how uninspired you are.   ~Thanks~

Sharon the grind does that. I hope things get better soon, I know it sucks. As for inspired though? No, just forced myself to do something. Tank ya

Hey, I just woke up from an eight month sleep. I think you're inspired and don't know it. Where'd this wonderful poem come from?

LOL Liz! Thank you, I wish I could do it again and again and again.

DD I wish. Maybe I just need to sit down and force myself to write again. Thanks.

Gene, I think I've been asleep for longer than that LOL...I'm not really sure where this came. I think forceably, and irritation that I haven't been able to write anything for a while. But then again, I never wrote very much. One of those, I write one, and not again for a long time. Sometimes, if I'm lucky I might get 2 in one day, or maybe even 2 in one month. Just never often.

Thanks Kathleen, but it don't look like you've been uninspired. I see your poems
You're doing great!

LOL thanks for bringing it up again.  I've been thinking about my hosp stay and what I can write about that.

God bless
