Today a message came to me

From one who reads my poetry

The sender asked just how I write

And how my ideas come to light

He wanted help for what Block had caused

Asked “How come your content’s never paused?”

Tonight, my friend, I’ll heed your call

And tell you how I break that wall

But know we’re all unique, its true

What works for me may not for you

So if for topics, I feel strife

My first step is to think of life

I ask myself for what I care

What fills my mind when no one’s there?

And almost always, this one step

It works without more need for prep

But for the times when more, I need

I’ll read what past things I have keyed

Sometimes I’ll use them as a base

Elaborate, a past embrace

The most important thing, to me

Is just to let your mind go free

Take all the things we’re taught to think

Forget them all, your mind unlink

Then rip the ceiling from your thought box

Let them escape, take outside walks

When your thoughts, you liberate

The block becomes an open gate

And so, to all who struggle, too

The simplest answer I have for you

Is during times your brain has slept

Pick just one word: that’s your concept

So often, friends, we complicate

When simple’s the approach to take

Working this way helps, I know

Just pick one thought, and make it grow

And as I look back at my own

Some things I’ll share, examples shown

Purpose, Fear, my Mother, Blurred

My concepts start with just one word

And when you start to write this way

The Block, it seems to fade away

The ideas flow, the concepts rife

So take these words, and change a life
