Study Break - Poem by Trevor Schulte

Thoughts float round
in your innovative mind
as you search for the answer
you long to find
Idea after idea
being pushed aside
with doubts blocking
the chance to decide
Oh the agony beats the brain
as you fall back and recite
probing for that linear moment
when your bulb does ignite
Words flow in and out
nothing being stout
but just prolonging
this endless mind drought
You search for the theme
you search for the setting
then you tend to lose sight
as frustration starts sweating
Bang the table, flip the chair
break the pencil, pull out the hair
Nothing seems to cease this thwarted,
distorted, seemingly aborted
idea that has yet to be courted
but all in all remains unsupported
Stop the grief and take a second
finding a solution that you may reckon
A brisk walk around the block
may be what calls your name
settling the idiosyncrasies
and retargeting their aim
Blessing yourself through
the idea of relaxing
letting your thought-process
begin its waxing
For when you take this study break
you are voiding a possible mistake
and giving your brain a needed shake
coaxing all of its hurting aches
So study on my friend
with your sight pushing on
replenished and refocused
on painting a new dawn
