Nothing Writes Itself - Poem by Shalom Freedman


Nothing writes itself-
Isn’t it enough already?
I have done what I could do
It wasn’t that much-

I need Poetry
Far more than Poetry needs me
It does not need me at all-

I with small lines
Try to belong to its world
But do I? can I?

Oh the world and all the Beauty
And Inspiration
I could not write-

And I and my little lines
Dying to be born
