A Writer’s Struggle

Why is she afraid to write
To write that which her soul yearns

She takes the Notepad to write
She tosses it away because her wrist hurts
She picks up her phone, then she finds herself mindlessly scrolling
She looks for her motivation
It is nowhere to be found
Her eyes shut before she could try to journal

The next morning, her world is filled with ideas
Her soul deeply glows
She finds energy telling stories in her head
Then she begins to write,
yet NOT the stories in her head
She struggles to find stories like her
While praying to write like her

Is this fear? she wonders
