Bottom Of The Tank

Written by: Jack Ellison



When I sit down to write my poetry And my mind goes totally blank Must admit at times I wonder Have I reached the bottom of the tank? So I say to myself, hang in there self It's happened many times before Just when I think I've hit the bottom Out pops a whole bunch more Should know by now how it all works These lulls are a temporary thing Something will always trigger a concept And once again my poetry sings So the key word surely is patience Rome wasn't built in a day I'll be hit by some poetic thunderbolt And again I'll be on my way When I sit down to write my poetry I think of how much I've been blessed Still have the ability to express myself Goes a long way to relieving stress! © Jack Ellison 2013
