"Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited, imagination encircles the world."

The strings
dig into my fingers.
I lose circulation to
my right hand.
I strum a simple
down up down up up.
My fingers move themselves.
My lips whisper lyrics
my brain conjured hours ago.
I misplace a finger.
The D string yells
at me.
When will I
get this right?

This is a free verse poem I had to write for my language arts class. It's about when I was first learning to play guitar.
