creativity

saying aloud

(berlin has the most amazing street art)

“i am a creative person”

without irony or
embarrassment

is never quite so easy

it took me a lot of time
and
a lot of mind warping
experiences

to realize

yes

i am a creative person

my relationship with creativity
shape shifts
as frequently
as i do

i will
i think
never fully understand
where it comes from or
why

but
it’s here
and
denying it
denies something
divine

(i never feel light when i refuse creativity)

do not cower from your talents
embrace those gifts
that are exactly that —
gifts

you’re not simply a person
with arms
legs
and a mind

you’re a gift
with gifts

start unwrapping them
take them down off the shelves
and
play

what are the gifts you encourage and share?

much love,
