This Writer in About a Hundred Words

Creative urge, writers’ block
my ironic paradox
yet striving for an absurd goal
narrating me in brief, yet whole

When my invite I first read
challenge accepted, I said
so here goes, how hard can it be
to tell the world all about me?

I think, I dream, I write and
use my words to take a stand
on things I’m passionate about
prefer to scribe, not scream or shout

What else do I wish to say?
to what purpose anyway?
are the remaining words enough?
nope! this ends here — writing is tough!
