Creating My Life, Poems Today I Choose To Write March 1, 2010 After two hours of diversionary tactics — A phone call Some emails A load of washing — I finally sit in the chair, Pen poised on paper And I hesitate. I am scared. Scared of putting myself “out there” Scared of what you might think of me Because the writing may be Too long Too short Too revealing Or J u s t P l a i n D u l l. But, what other choice is there? Ignore the impulse. Ignore the call. Stay forever comfortable While life’s potential continues to beckon And I look the other way. — Not today Today I will be done with mediocre. Today I will write fearlessly. See! Look! I Choose . . . sitting in the chair Pen moving — I write. Previous Learning Discipline - Is It Really So Bad?
