Be Creative

they are there
the voices
stifling originality

sometimes external
friends family
coworkers clergy

donít be different!

they are there
the voices
stifling creativity

sometimes internal
remembrances of childhood admonitions
protocols rules restrictions

donít try something new!

they are there
socialization traumatic experiences,
rejection working

to shut down
our inner creative self
over the course of our live

donít get it wrong!

over time individuality
wholeness our creative nature
replaced with its opposite

conformity

listen to the other voices:

be different!
try something new!
you canít get it wrong!
