A poem for myself, and maybe for you too

Do you remember when
You were Creative?

Were you younger then,
Smarter then, or
Better than
You are now?
Do you remember?

Was it when your pen

Liberated your thoughts from their cage?

Or were words yet woefully imprisoned
By the wide ruling on the page
Now stained forever?

Do you remember late nights,
Red recorder lights
Keys of blacks and whites
Cups of coffee?

Was your confidence simply sapped?
Or in the age of responsibility
With the 9 to 5 track you lapped,
Did you forget your Creativity?

You were an artist then!
You were much better than
The rest of them,
So said your friends.

…so what happened then…?

You seem somehow so shocked and
Disheveled
As if afraid you’d never get back to
That level

Of what you were
When you were
Creative

Do you remember then?

Do you remember when
You were Creative?
