Another crumpled sheet floats to the floor,
Joining the pile of discarded drafts.
I nervously tap the pen onto the notebook,
As if it will magically inspire.
What do I do?
Pour one more cup of tea?
Sit for another hour and continue to create nothing but a mess?
My apologies to the trees…
My blue-box will be full this week…
Full of half-ass ideas and disappointment.
Perhaps tomorrow my creative side will show.
Perhaps I will write something interesting…
The words will flow through me once again,
Bringing life to an empty page.
Perhaps one day I will be published…
And be able to take pride in my hard work.
Even if just one person actually reads it, let alone likes it…
Yes- tomorrow is another day to try again,
To work on a dream that means the world to me.
Tomorrow is full of potential.
I just hope I have another notebook…
