I Feel Too Tired To Write Now - Poem by Shalom Freedman


I feel too tired to write now
Nonetheless I force myself
What can come of this?

Once upon a time there were lines of spontaneous Beauty
Now there is an aching effort to sustain a mind in decline-
I write to live
To keep living
Against the tiredness
Against the decline
Little lines that see the sun shining through the morning window
And are written down as record of what will soon and forever be gone
