Inspiration cannot be forced

A poem is like a child or a confession,
there is no way to force it out.
It’ll come when it’s ready.
Sit and stare at a blank screen,
type nonsense til you want to scream,
try to birth something deep or profound,
but it will not come, it’s sitting tight,
there is no way to force inspiration out.
