The Writer’s Block – #5 – Pause

I’m pulling this writing prompt from The Daily Post; a website that hosts an especially useful daily writing prompt exercise featuring one word.

Once I have the mental energy, I’m going to start making this a daily routine.

Can I press pause?

Would you think less of me,

if I stepped away?

Can I stop?

Is my weakness hidden;

or is it like a scarlet letter plastered on my chest?

I need a break;

am I the only one feeling this way?

I need a minute;

is the stench of my failure overpowering?

I don’t know if I can do this.

Is it normal to doubt yourself this much?

I need to press pause,

before this life suffocates me.
