Lament

Inspired by Steven Pressfield's The War of Art.

I quit
I give in
I can’t do this any more

I'm sick
Of the stress
Of never getting anywhere

I can't live

With the pain

Of the unfulfilled dream

If I accept

One more excuse

For why I'm not writing

If the battle

To pursue my dream

Is allowed to wear me through

I will die

Having not

Fulfilled my life's calling

It's time to put an end

To the guilt

The shame

The regret

Of the pressure

To make something

Of myself

I accept

That I can't

Make it happen

Through pure will

So right now

This minute

And every day

Going forward

I'm just going to let go of trying

And simply be

What it is

I am meant

To be
