I stare at the empty page and the blinking cursor
Is this the symbol of my life?
Feelings bubble up inside of me
like water boiling in a tea kettle
like the steam that shoots out of the spout
and evaporates to nothing
I can form no words or thoughts
This is pain
This is frustration
This is disappointment in myself
Am I afraid of my own truth?
if I face my truth will I be able to take it
not crumble under it’s weight?
I sit in front of this page now not so empty
with some words
With bald desire to open my truth
With shaking courage
