Writers block is a plague and I'm infected. Hi, I'm Araw. I'm seventeen and I call myself I writer.

First Corner Writing Club prompt I've ever done! I probably could've spent more time on this, but I just wanted to get something out.

FREE WRITING

13
I wish I felt satisfied with myself
Like I am not some half baked
Shoddily constructed
Work in progress
 
No matter how many poems I write
Or how many equations I solve
My work never seems to be done
Because it never feels done
 
I wish I felt calm
About going to sleep at night
Instead of tearing myself apart
Because of how much work time is lost when I am in my bed
 
We are meant to get eight hours of sleep
But that is eight hours I could have been awake
Writing stories
That I’ll end up deleting anyway
 
I wish I felt enough
Enough for myself
So I can finally stop working
So I can finally sleep

    Beautiful, just beautiful. And I relate so much to this that it's not even funny. You always do great in my eyes, M.
