Is haiku mountain-
climbing? An awkward move up
just to let you down..?

When you were at school who liked poetry really? I think I hated Shakespeare but it may just have been the way I was taught and how the works were actually presented to me. I do like a lot of Shakespeare though find some a bit over the top.

Sitting there fighting tears, inside her all the emotions bubbling and fighting to burst out.

Achievemephobia. The fear of succeeding, or the fear of achieving your goals. I will never forget the day that this stunning revelation settled in my mind. I had fought and struggled for years against this fear without ever having a name for it. I had always told people that I was a "Professional Procrastinator", or that I had a mental block that prevented me from finishing projects. I was an artist. A fine artist, working mainly in oils. I don't even think I can count the number of unfinished art pieces stored in my studio room. Once I realized that my issue wasn't a mental block, or procrastination, but was a fear of succeeding as an artist it was as if the millions of puzzle pieces of my life fell into place. I could see clearly. This has been my life long fear.
