Writer’s Block

Arwen Lyonesse, 11th Grade, BCECHS


I’m writing a book 

I don’t think I’ll ever get to finish 

I’ll never get the right hook 

my ideas will soon diminish 


and there’s a project I want to start 

but the details escape me 

I know that it’s just art 

but the start always breaks me 


and I’m scared that once I begin 

there’s just no going back 

because I’ve seen that in people 

and it’s only a fact 


I hope that who we are when we start 

can be changed as we go 

because I don’t want to start 

if I can’t grow
