WRITE SOMETHING

I have been challenged

To everyday

Just WRITE SOMETHING

You’d think that’d be a simple task

Since I call myself a writer

Just WRITE SOMETHING

Isn’t as easy as it seems.

What am I supposed to write

When all I’m trying to do is

Just WRITE SOMETHING?

Maybe I should WRITE SOMETHING

About how I woke up feeling great, ready to take on the day

Until I turned on the news heard the snow storm hit earlier than expected

Making the commute to and from work a complete disaster

Maybe I should WRITE SOMETHING

About how for once

The CTA was running on time

And I actually made it to work early

As opposed to my standard 5 – 10 minutes late

Maybe I should WRITE SOMETHING

About how long my workday seems to drag when I’m in the office

And how fast times flies when I’m not

Maybe I should WRITE SOMETHING

About how I’m grateful that I have a job

But really feel like I’m just spinning my wheels coming here everyday

Maybe I should WRITE SOMETHING

About the homeless woman I saw during lunch

And how I wondered where she’d go tonight when the ‘deep freeze’ hits

Maybe I should WRITE SOMETHING

About never finding the time to myself to write

Instead settling on jotting lines down

On whatever piece of paper is handy

Whenever something comes to mind

Maybe I should WRITE SOMETHING

About how at the end of the day

I look in my notebook and all I see written is

I WISH I COULD’VE THOUGHT

OF SOMETHING TO WRITE

I like this, I have done that so many times, thinking I had nothing to say and then wrote a really long message. I like this one too!

You got me thinking the same thing for there is so much in my mind I want to write, but look at a piece of paper and do nothing. I like this for it made me think and it makes me want to go write something.
