It matters not what others think
or to what depths they choose to sink.
What matters is the things I know;
those things that let my juices flow.
Creativity, the constant fire;
the beauty of its cleansing pyre.
Creativity, once set free
reminds just who I can be.
But when it’s stifled by “The Rules”
we blunder like a pack of fools.
So I let my imagination wander far;
forgetting where the rule books are.
Walking instead on mountains high
where head and heart can reach the sky.
It’s there, when deep in contemplation
I find my truth – my inclination.
