Driving Through the Writer's Block

My mind has gone blank, now what do I do?
Had an idea to share, but lost the thought that I knew.

I could write about animals, flowers, or trees.
But what I wanted has left me, help me please.

Searching my mind for what I had thought,
I can't seem to grasp it, I fear it's been lost.

Nothing comes to mind at this specific time,
So I choose to write whatever comes to my mind.

Focus my mind I find what's good and what's not.
I will write something about this writer's block.

So you see, what I've come up with for you to read.
We all have this problem sometimes indeed.

You must push through the emptiness and you must write.
What you know, what you feel, or what it is that's right.
