365 Poems: Pilgrims progress

Day 350

“All you have to do is write one true sentence. Write the truest sentence that you know.” ― Ernest Hemingway

That's how to start. Then you write one true line after another but they don't always come out true the first time. You have to write a line that's maybe not 100% true then you whittle it and refine it and hone it and make it truer and truer and truer and you do that to every. Single. Line.
