I Shall Wait No More

I sit and pray

for dawn

of inspiration,

cajole it

to come along

on my journey of action—

it doesn’t,

shows reluctant

to surpass the blocks

the barricades

in my mind

I shall be more conscious

of their

stealthy invasions,

in future,

But for now,

I must move on

without delay—

act,

inspiration

will just have to

find its way

to follow.
