Ready To Cry

by Joan Serratelli

I'm a long hand writer
who has writer's cramp

Cannot type too well
When will it end?

Mu neck is SCREAMING at me

and yet...
This is my passion
I cannot stop

It's who I am
it's what I do
and yet....

I don't know

I just want to cry
This is NOT the end

I will get better

....won't I?


My fingers don't work

I'm lost
If I can no longer write

....I truly don't know

what will happen

Just Venting



Author's Note: I do NOT want pity- I just feel like I', losing it. Cannot read my own handwriting!!

I like the purposeful typos in this one, which add weight to the message. With me, it's my eyesight...I need cataract surgery (February), so typos are more common these days, even with proof-reading. If it's any consolation, I never learned proper typing...always been a two-finger typist.
