Appearing out of nowhere,
These old enemies of mine,
Cause me to falter
As I begin to write each line.
Self Doubt, Intimidation, Fear,
All make their appearance.
They cause my mind to wander,
With their sudden interference.
Yet somewhere within me,
Another appearance is made.
Confidence and Determination enter,
And cause those enemies to fade.
Once again I begin to write,
And the challenge I do undertake.
It appears my poems will be written,
And perhaps a chapbook I will make!
