Muse On The LooseAs you keep being there on time,Muse On The Loose by Redsterfish
You just feel how that cotton swab grows.
You know you only get those feedbacks: It´s fine.
And then your pillow will explode at the show.
All those feathers hover in the air,
you still think: I don´t care.
And before you knew what was happening,
that psychologist pushed you into that mould ...kling.
A massive weariness which is the precursor
of a insidious and paralyzing state of mind.
Creativity and fun is about to flee ...behind?
Surly you only want to get some sleep, tame the predator.
The routine will do it´s very best job,
freeze your mind and float with the mob.
That´s all they want you to do.
Work for their world, fit like the perfect shoe.
They don´t need to dig for alternatives,
it´s their business, just has to run faster and fluently.
You will be the collateral or even at the junk fives,
if you don´t say yes and amplify their very own cruelty.
You will be a part of the system, the tiny little cog,
.upon surrender..upon surrender..upon surrender. by Amanda-Graham
... only she knows ...
The art of losing isn’t hard to master;
so many things seem filled with the intent
to be lost that their loss is no disaster.
touch stones without remark tumbled
one after another
no clack of disapprovals shed
one after another
as though i were an insult though they never spat me out
as though i were a crime they'd committed in dead of night
as though i were several different outfits now out on consignment
as though I were the dog who barked at a breaking
How to Nurture the Artist Child, or Kill ItThose of you who know me know I tend to be quiet, letting my art do the talking. But when I write I get wordy. But some things need to be said in words. So until I get better at succinctness, please bear with me.How to Nurture the Artist Child, or Kill It by emcorpus
Creativity is a characteristic given to all human beings at birth.
-- Abraham Maslow
All children are born geniuses.
-- Buckminster Fuller
Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up.
-- Pablo Picasso
My take on the last statement is that the problem is even worse: how is the child to remain an artist once he or she is born? I don’t for an instant question that inherent creative genius in children is “Nature”. For me this is a given, and at least in this essay will not endeavor to defend that assertion.
With the possible exception of those born with congenital birth defects (and even that is an open question for me), I believe the fostering of creative geniu

'Cuz why should you even try?
When the world just seems to be crushing and grinding,
Your fragile,weeping soul.
The pressure of it mounting,
And you feel like
You are no longer in control.
Like you never really were,
You were never really there.
And you should never ever,
Have a dream you hold dear and near.
'Cuz really what's the point?
You were never really here,
From nothing to nothing,
All you can do is hope someone will still be here,
To remember you.
