Writing a Poem

A poem I wrote showing the difficulty of writing poems:

“ ‘Tis a poem I must write”

I tell myself as I hold my pen,

Open the windows, let in some light

What must I write about, then?

Inspiration, I have none

Though my surroundings ought to inspire

Poetic thoughts, they have all gone

Now, don’t go ahead and call me liar

For now, I write,

Now an idea, I have got

I write about the struggle, the fight

Of preventing poetry from beginning to rot
