In a Rut 

I hate my poetry rut….

The one where I can’t quite find the right words or make the right phrases flow like poetic gospel. UGH! 

Hopefully I’ll be out of this rut soon. I would really like to perform something at the next open mic night, but if I don’t have anything that’s worth it, I won’t. I would like to have something halfway decent at least. Lol

*sigh* the life of a struggling poet lol 



  1. I’ve been in a similar rut. Not just with poetry but writing as a whole – I’m feeling lost. A lot of personal conflict going on and it’s clouding my thoughts and actions. I’m not sure how to overcome it but something that my mom says in prayer before entering a possible argument is “Dear Lord, let my words flow like a calm river.” So, Whitney, I pass those on to you! 🙂
