“Busy-ness” (Poem)

I feel uninspired,

I look at the clock and remember

I haven’t written today,

and sigh because

I feel unmotivated

but obligated to push through

and write anyway.

So I do.

As best I can,

which is not as well as I’d like.

It’s easier

with an idea.

But I have none.

If you like this poem, you’d enjoy my poetry collection Inside a Writer’s Head. More details about when and where that will be available very soon.

This was written today. It is not part of the collection, but it fits with the theme of the collection.
