Unfinished Business

Cannot seem to find the words
As easily
The words do not flow out of my pen
As they did once before.
So poem after poem
Goes unfinished
In my big book of lies.

A book I had once filled
With promises, with hope,
With love, with desire,
But now there’s no more
Light to light my fire.

Unfinished stories
Unfinished business

Something like this year
Whose end draws near
Resolutions and solutions
Wr itten and rewritten
In my big book of lies.

As another year passes
The big book reopens
I start anew
This will be the new
New Year
A fresh start
This will be the right one
These will be my new resolutions
These will be my new solutions
For rewriting a new story
As another year fades away
From my once easy to
Write in book
Where now
I can’t seem to find the words
Easily anymore

…Unfinished business
As yet another year goes by

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
