The Well of Inspiration

I went to the Well 
For inspiration
My days had been filled
With my frustration

I wanted easy
A mind vacation
The well consisted
Of perspiration 

So there's no shortcuts
Just realization
I add my own sweat
With my creations

So off to the grind
New expectations
With new perspective
Gained inspiration

    That does not mean you are not as good. Your writing is exceptional. I would not have you as a favorite unless I connected with your writing.

    A very fine poem for inspiration. Poets know a lot about it. A fine line between it and frustration! Great work! If I may, I think your previous avatar better inspired!

    Wherever you trod, there is mutation.. Amid the trees and all plantation... So use your soul for a better navigation... The sky has not once set a limitation!! Lovely poem!
