I Really Want To Write - Poem by Heather Darling

I really want to write.
For years
I’ve been saying,
“I really want to write.”

I want more time,
more inspiration,
more motivation.

That’s what I’ve been saying.

I haven’t made the time,
have ignored inspiration,
and avoided motivation.

Perhaps it requires self-denial,
depravation,
pain,
sorrow, or
commitment.

Maybe I don’t want to write.
