Ode to Creativity
Creating for creation
Making a connection
In education or recreation
Elevation or alleviation
A priest to confess fear, anger, and stresses
A solvent to eradicate the messes
Red light to no; green light to yeses
In a box, it picks the locks
Busts out like a fox
Oohs, awes, wows and shocks
A beast with heightened senses
A master of self-defenses
Slips through all the fences
In past, present, and future tenses
Lickety-split, moves real quick
Takes no shortcuts; uses a few tricks
Watch the clock, and listen to its ticks
Mind the ground; it’s bound to be slick
Stop, stall, stumble, slump, slide, slip
Drop the top and gawk on your road trip
Can’t get to good without driving thru shit
Find lots of misses digging for a hit
Ignites a spark in flooded fire pits
Tired of keeping this kindling lit
About to pull over and call it quits
Press on; toil on
Gamble, ramble, and Calgon
Keep the pros; Chuck Norris bad stuff
Because life is tough, can I get a Sho’nuff?
For this go-round, you only get one shot
Eminem said that, be it truth or not
Creativity is all we got
This doodle by #MUCreativeClub member, Reagan Adams reminds me that creativity allows us to boldly go where no one has gone before, but that there is no easy way from the earth to the stars.
BoredPanda's doodle reminds me that there's always a more creative idea out there, and it's important to stay humble, inspired, and to only compete with myself. Rid yourself of kiasu.
Got a poem, doodle, meme, gif or giraffe to explain what creativity means to you? I'd love to see, read, or ask it a few questions. Drop me a line, if you're feeling kind.
Until next time...keep on creatin' on.
