Writer’s Block

Why are there days in your life
When ideas will not come at all?
When the blank in the flow of words
Is like bumping against a wall?

The easily flowing phrases
That usually spring to your mind,
Are replacced by a shuttered window
So black, you feel you are blind.

Perhaps, whenever this happens,
You should put your pencil away;
God is probably telling you
You have nothing worthwhile to say.

Inspiration will come again to you,
Ideas will once more start to flow,
When you have a message to share
That the rest of the world needs to know.

– Mary Eileen Butera
