IF

If I were to sit down and write
What would I say
The blank page frightens me
The blank screen frightens me
My journal has topics to explore
But when I sit down to write
Written memories are vanquished
There is no recall
Only fright
Instead, I copy words from others
And call that writing
It’s not you know
Instead, I put down mundane mediocrity
That’s not writing,
you know
Are you frightened too?
