Back Space

Back space, rewrite, highlight, delete.
The process I seem to repeat and repeat.
It's not about the end or the middle part,
It's always hardest for me, to find the start.

The wind whispered, no, that ain't right,
Time paused... I wish it'd pause tonight.
Just type one letter, guess I'll start with T,
Maybe then, the words, will come to me.

Ohhh! delete, delete, delete, Delete!!
Back space, rewrite, rinse and repeat.
Maybe I should try a noun instead,
He...he did what? Maybe "he said"?

What did he say...nothing exciting...
Maybe he said I should give up on writing.
As I haven't wrote, one single word yet,
And I've been going for many hours at it.

What i learned;" What motivates you to begin a journey filled with pain and suffering, when you know that the conclusion cant be said with a few words that eases the pain of understanding "

I believe anyone with a gift like yours should never be doubted, especially your own words that comes to mind.
