My brain is drained of clever things today,
There's just a gap where there ought to be words
I used to think that persistence would pay,
But thoughts fly off like flocks of frightened birds.
So now I'm left alone with glowing screen
And with my mind all darkened just in case,
I cannot write a single thing I mean,
And nothing's come to take my muse's place.
But even when I'm feeling uninspired,
I'll write my lines and let my worries go
Sometimes beginning's all that is required
From simple starts the greatest things can grow.
So here are words from my dark mind unseen,
That sit for your eyes now upon this screen.
