Weeds are flowers too

With the best will in the world, today I could only summon up a few weeds of wisdom!

Today, I don’t feel like writing.
I’m not even sure I could
put pen to paper or fingers to keyboard
or even talk to an app.

Today, I don’t feel like writing.
But, I promised myself I would.
At the start of the year, I made a vow
Write daily, write something, even crap.

Today, I don’t feel like writing.
The words, well, they just aren’t there.
I checked on my blog and found nada, my notepad is empty too
there’s nothing on my voice recorder, I really don’t know what to do.

Today, I don’t feel like writing.
It’s grey and cold outside.
I’d rather sit by the fire,
with a book or three by my side.

But, I’m not the type to admit defeat
I can’t stand to break that vow.
So, I’ll type a little nonsense,
and get the words down somehow.

It doesn’t have to make sense
or be particularly clever.
A sentence or two will do
even if it’s just on the weather.

Today, I don’t feel like writing.
So, why have I massacred these lines?
Is it because I’m too old-school
and insist that a poem must rhyme?

Whatever the reason, I’m not fussed
for the task I was dreading is done.
The kettle is on, the biscuits are waiting
and I’m all set for some fun.

I didn’t feel like writing,
but I did it anyway,
it’s a piece of shite – we can all agree.
But it’s over  … and I’m done for today.

Thanks for reading 🙂

(you poor, unsuspecting fool – I’m sorry to have wasted your time, but needs must)
