    a blank page of paper
    stares at my soul
    beckoning the emotions
    my life can’t control
    with arms outstretched
    it whispers….I know
    at the end of my rope
    how can I let go

    i’m scared of the stanzas
    afraid of the ink
    questioning my experiences
    and what others may think
    trying to convey
    what words just can’t say
    is like talking to god
    but not knowing how to pray

    a passionate pen
    lays humbled and lifeless
    itching and waiting
    for me to start writin’
    it hears pain in my silence
    and senses potential
    the ink in its womb
    can be so sentimental

    I must confess
    a secret complex:
    i’m an imperfect perfectionist
    running through the fragments
    and broken line
    this poem alone was written
    half a million times

    i am humbled and broken
    mistakenly human
    so I hesitate to use my pen
    my talent is wasted
    i supposed
    but at least my life
    was not exposed
    scared of expression
    and being vulnerable
    the rewards are too risky
    I just can’t let go

    many are the thoughts
    and reasons to write
    but few are the lines
    that ever come out right
    i fell victim to poetry
    now my imagination won’t stop
    suffering from inspiration
    and severe writer’s block
