will creativity return?

23 Jan

what

a question

 

I remember

words flowing

and writing 2-page poems

without stopping

 

and as I wrote  each word

not knowing what would follow

it was  “inspiration”

like only inspiration  can be

in its finest and purest

essence

 

each day was filled with

emotions that would be written

and later

I strived to find a way to have

these emotions ….. I’ll call them poems….

published in book form

 

youth finds a way

to make a way when there

appears to be no way

 

maybe because

at that time of life

nothing is impossible

and the energy we have then….

wow,  we have the energy to go

the extra mile

until we reach, or partly reach

our goals

 

then the reality of life

knocks on our door

and says, lights out

you gotta earn a living

do what others are doing

have a family

and go to college if you are able

 

and the cost

is more than money —

it is giving up creativity

to find the jobs

to secure the future

 

now, too many years later

I am retracing my steps

to find where my creativity went

 

maybe there is time to find

inspiration again

and finish the dream

I began
