Empty page

By Amanda Ripsam

I am staring at the empty page

with nothing to fill the space

I am blank you see,

I just don’t know what to tell everybody.

I am empty inside alone and lost.

I am trying to find my place on this white page.

I am filled with words that linger on the tip of my tongue.

I am finding it difficult to express my thoughts

without them sounding dumb
