Unfinished #poetry

Unfinished poems and stories
Lie in wait
For a time when I can again create

Broken promises
And lies
Seem to leave me paralyzed

Add the weight of my world
And I can’t breathe
Let alone write a scene

How can I give hope
When I have none myself
How can I waste time
When nothing sells

    Awww, don’t feel alone! We all feel like this at some point(S). I just shook off feeling like this a few days ago. Damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead!

  2. Hi, Shannon! I LOVE this. Especially the initial three lines, and the ending two: “How can I give hope / When I have none myself.” So true. You can’t give anyone else hope or courage or inspiration or anything else unless you have it yourself. We try, but usually to no avail.

    Thanks for sharing your poetry! I’ve shared on Twitter. 🙂

    Best wishes,
