Feeling unmotivated and incapable

By Anna SamsonPublished 3 years ago 1 min read

I wish I had something meaningful to say

Something of substance

Of character

But I have nothing to share

Except my desire to create

I wish to be more

More than I am

More than everything I ever thought possible

Yet here I am,

Unable to do the bare minimum

It’s not laziness

But circumstance

And a lack of talent

And that is my pain

That is my flaw

Maybe one day I’ll have something to say

Something of value

Something meaningful

But until then

I’ll wait

Who knows if the time will ever come

But all I can do is wait and hope
