An I Can't Write a Poem Poem

My Poem for the Day 

I feel like a repository
of clichés, trite rhymes,
and clunky meter.  

Like an original thought
would suffocate
in my mind. 

The only things that come out
have been said before,
and badly.  

But I also feel
like a mountain climber:
stubborn, determined, dauntless.  

Whatever it is that gets them to top--
I have a small dose of that
to write my poems.
