Creativity I Need You

By Cassandra Stahlecker

Words elude me

my time has surely come

Lack of inspiration is binding me

My mind taken hostage

Will I ever do this?

I need to pass this class


Creativity, I need you!


Write six lines 

It is just a bop

Plop down some words

You’ll make it work

“Find a problem” you say

Whelp, I certainly

Am at a crossroad

But I guess I’m writing slop


Creativity, I need you!


We are running out of time

I can barely make a rhyme

Soon there will be a line to leave

Yet I will be late

For a very important date

Because I’m stuck writing this


Creativity, I need you!
