It stands guard against your half-engaged brain,
blocking the thoughts -the emotion-
from pouring from your mind,
through your heart, and to the tips
of your fingers for you to spill
onto the page.
To battle the warden of your words,
search for inspiration
in the crevices of monotony, of routine
and discover the beauty
in the every day.
Read of the places
others have traveled to,
or dreamed of.
Study their ventures,
their quests, and goals.
Endure their heartbreak,
their elation, and confusion.
Look into their words
and uncover your own.
I have a Q&A on my instagram where I write poems based on questions readers ask. The first question I tackled was how I overcome writers block.
If you would like to ask me a question about myself, writing, life, anything really, just comment below. I will write a poem to answer your question!
