Always: an Abecedarian


Brimming with possibilities, I
Constantly search for poetic end points,
Devoted to the ideas but
Evading the effort.
Failing myself is a
Given, knowing that I’m not
Helping myself by not starting.
I give up before I even begin.
Jokes aside, it ends now.
Keep going. Keep going.
Learn to persevere.
Make it to the end.
Never stop writing for fear of failure
Or failure will surely follow.
Perhaps that is the key:
Quietly, doggedly carrying on.
Unwavering when faced with the
Very wall you are
eXpected to climb with ease.
You tell yourself you will.
Zone out. Zone in. Write always.
