Where does it come from the drive to create
Remaking anew without a template
Traveling places you’ve never been
Enduring loneliness coming from within
Hearing footsteps of advancing age
Harnessing the energy of internal rage
Giving in multiples to those at your side
Trusting faith through bumps and backslide
The longing that drives and pushes you on
Pulls in directions you’ve never gone
When victory seems an impossible dream
Embrace the process as part of the scheme
When knowing is found in a backward recess
Exploring newness is your happiness
The context of learning facing you east
Each day serving up a delicious feast
Much of the learning growing and thrust
Arises from inside as long as you trust
Following the god down deep inside
Honoring innovation keeps you alive
What motivates your creativity?
Where does it come from?
What does the gift of creating do for you?
For those close to you?
For the community?
When you deny your capacity for creating what happens?
Are there consequences?
How do you suffer?
What do you miss?
Is the denial worth the price?
Why do you think so, or not?
