I Have A Blank Page Again - Poem by Shalom Freedman

I have a blank page again
I can write something

Why after all the years
Must I begin so tentatively
As if I have never written before?

I am old and slow and afraid
Perhaps it is all nothing
And I am nothing too

I am no hero
But I do begin again

Writing a few lines after all
Is not like a soldier body at risk in war

Old and cold
Slow and low
I go on and I go on
So so so.
