Creativity (a Poem)

Posted on

creation
creativity
born out of naiveté

oneperson’s thoughts
oneperson’s soul
put out as a culture
bought & sold

everyone buys it
everyone eats it
everyone consumes it

you shared your soul
you gave it away
now a piece of you is at Burger King
in a Rugrat-shaped mini chicken filet

so commercial
so distressed

catching yourself admiring your own work
the only true success test

created it
breathed it to life
a piece of your heart on display
now where to keep the bloody knife?

I found this while looking for a poem to start my second book with. I really love this one, but it didn’t fit that purpose. I just keep laughing every time I get to the chicken filet part!
