A New Notebook

The virgin page
Stares into my eyes
Between the lines
Says “Come on
Impress me. Give
Me your best shot.
Start as you mean
To go on. Don’t
Begin me with
Mediocre babble.
Make it so that
Every time you
Open me you’ll be
Filled with inspiration.
Proud of what
You can achieve. ”
I say ” I’ll do my best. ”
Then go and fail
With this easily
Forgettable, piece
Of crap.
