Itís hard to write when not inspired,
when hungry, lonely, sad, or tired.
Iíll try to write some anyway,
Ďcause thatís just where I am today.
Hunger always affects my mood,
but Iím too lazy to get some food.
And lonesome is a state of mind,
my dogs can fix that anytime.
Sad Ďcause Iím not inspired to write,
I stare at this blank sheet so white.
Iím tired because I slept too long,
Iíll probably whine the whole daylong.
I think Iím at a pity party,
I should eat breakfast good and hearty.
I should see if my neighborís home,
So I wonít sit here all alone.
If I go outside Iíll be quite glad,
Sunshine helps when I feel sad.
If I sleep again Iíll be more tired,
Maybe Iíll try out in the yard.
Donít waste your time and pity me,
Iím having fun at my party.
I think Iíll take a nap or two,
and then I know what I will do.
Iíll write a poem so inspired,
youíll think it is my best so far.
Youíll wonder how a pathetic fellow,
can write so beautiful and mellow.
Iíve had some time to sulk and moan,
but God would not leave me alone.
His glory all around me proves,
itís always me not Him that moves.
