Choosing Life

Like many things in life,
writing is a decision.
I recently came to this conclusion.
I am not a writing genius,
among many others.

The seed of writing
didn’t just grow
without labour
or care.
Sowing, nourishing, attending
before its flourish,
there has been little sign of beauty.

Many times,
I wanted to give up
and give in.
I questioned myself,
‘Is this worthwhile
if I never see the bloom?’
what is the alternative?
There was this tiny seed,
how could I abort a life?

  1. Lovely Cassa I think a lot of us writers think like this. I know I certainly do. The more we work at it the better we get but it doesn’t come easy for me. I am glad you write my friend. I hope you won’t stop I like to read your work. Love ❤️ Joni

  2. So true! Writing is not always easy. Creativity is not always easy, but it is just engrained in some of us to keep trying. It takes hours and hours of trying but the end result is beautiful and worth it. When I feel uninspired I find it helpful to switch to a different topic or read.


    1. So true! Thanks for the tips on changing topic and reading. Reading really helps to generate new ideas! I appreciate you stopped by and commented.
