I once had “writer’s block”

And couldn’t think of anything to write

So I went on Google

And asked for inspiration

But only got quotes instead


I once walked on a dock

and bought myself a kite

because a crazy man with a bugle

told me to do that on my vacation

and after my purchase the wind quickly fled


I once stayed up all night

Studying for a test I knew I’d fail

Because I wanted the confidence achieved from my studious ways

And I thought I did well because I took it easily the next day

Until I realized I bombed the whole thing


I was once told I was alright

For my body wasn’t frail

But I wouldn’t accept my family’s praise

Because my sanity slipped away

And what was left I held between my mind and its sling
