Three pushing inside of me:
What I want to do – I cannot do
What I want to write – I cannot write
What I want to say – I cannot say

What I want to believe – I fight to believe

Three comfortable inside of me:
What I can do is dream – I shall dream
What I can do is think – I shall think
What I can do is feel – I shall feel

  1. I really like this. I feel like I connect with it. I’m a big dreamer and thinker, but when it comes to actually doing things to achieve those dreams, it can be very discouraging. Your poem makes me think of how an artist is sometimes their own worst enemy through their self-doubt and insecurities.


    • TK, that’s exactly where this poem was headed orginally. I have a lot to accomplish and definitely feel the pressures of life.

      I’m pretty sure I was born thinking and haven’t sropped yet. Makes for lots of questioning along the way.

      I’m glad I care share this with you. We can encourage each other.
