I want to write a poem – even though I don’t know how.

The paper lays flat before me,

my pen is primed;

but, what to write?

Something trite!?

Something rhymed?

What is this thing called ‘poetry?’

Why am I here?

What is my purpose?

Whose idea was this?

If I write, and miss,

and it turns out prose,

will you start to jeer?

But, at least I can say

that I tried to write a poem

today.
