Be yourself; because those who care don't matter and those who matter don't care. :)

--Dr. Seuss

While I sit
Reading whatever book
Is near enough to reach,
Things all start to blur together;
Especially ideas.
Really hard to think right now:
Seems as though my
Brain has gone to sleep.
Low and behold I do my best to
Overcome this force;
Creating a wall between me and inspiration,
Keeping me from my rightful course.

The author's comments:
I've been fighting a major block lately; enough said.

"Don't punish yourself," she heard her say again, but there would be punishment and pain, and there would be happiness too. That was writing."
--Markus Zusak, "The Book Thief"

I like the "creating a wall between me and inspiration" line. Good rhyming. I've written stuff about writer's block as well. :)
