writing writes me

I think we all secretly want to have words so powerful

that they explode the hearts and minds of others

I know I do

I spend my days obsessing

what to write?

what to write?

and then today

it hit me

I think I have the question wrong

I cannot force words

anymore than I can force the sun to shine

and while there are days that I'd like to do both

I think instead of making it happen

I'll just let it be

You see writing writes me

inspiration happens in an instant

hibernation in a flash

round and round we go

maybe there need not always be an explosion

maybe I should just get over myself

maybe I should just write

Invite me into your sphere.

I'll bring something of substance, every time!
