The Write Stuff

If they ask whether you have

the right stuff–

the answer is


If you’re full of panic,

doubt and worry and frustration,

if you hesitate and erase,

stare at a blank page for hours

until a dull throbbing echoes

through a mind empty of words,

and you couldn’t feel more lost–

the answer is still


Because you have a fine mind

that can overcome obstacles,

an imagination that paints a picture

unlike any other,

and no matter how long

the paths winds,

or how steep the hills,

your craft will only improve

from the journey.

One step isn’t enough,

or one thousand,

but each step makes you stronger.

So can you write

whatever is right?

  1. Aw, Caitlin, I LOVE this!! And you nailed it!! Every word is perfect! (For those who don’t know, Caitlin is my editor and very good friend, and she’s a wonderful poet, too!! As you can see!)

    Happy New Year, Caitlin! All the very best in 2015, and long may we conspire together in this crazy partnership we formed. YOU ROCK, Editor, Mine!!! 🙂


    • Sorry this took so long. I started the poem and forgot about it, but I was determined to share it for the new year, so I polished it up for everyone to enjoy.

      All the best to you and yours, as well. Happy 2015! 😀
