Auto-pret*

 
 
 
 
I sit to paint a picture,
Of me, in my element,
Long gaping at the canvas,
No ideas seem to cement.
 
A female, I am, I conclude,
Do I owe me any props?
Is there the ideal mix,
Of the gains and the flops?
 
Successful, I decide to add,
Generous all the way,
Intangibles, I list many,
But, how do I portray?
 
A briefcase, do I depict
Or money illustrate?
Kids and husband in tow,
Joy, does it demonstrate?
 
While I ponder over these,
The blankness stares back,
In the nothingness, I settle
I am an unfinished abstract.
 
*A play on introspect
