“If you're losing your soul and you know it, then you've still got a soul left to lose”
― Charles Bukowski

Creativity never bothered anybody with inane
Assumptions or idle thoughts,
It is brimming with unspoken miracles and masterpieces
Of our innermost soul, the one
We dare not expose
To anybody
In a less poetic form, lest they mock us for such
Abrasive truths and dramatic
Validation and confirmation of their own deprivations
Or worse still,
Their virtues empowered and made perfect
In another;
So we hide our instinctive, impulsive visionary selves
In a whirlwind
Of design and carefully articulated representation,
Beauty in and of itself, but still
Far from the original
A mere image of your heart
And soul.

“If it weren’t for the coffee, I’d have no identifiable personality whatsoever.” –David Letterman

For me, this is so true. Beyond TI, I find difficulty in expressing my views without being attacked or questioned about them. However, I have no problem with slipping it into a poem. I love how you relate with the audience (T.I. poets) in this piece. Awesome work! :D

First dentistry was painless.
Then bicycles were chainless,
Carriages were horseless,
And many laws enforceless.

Next cookery was fireless,
Telegraphy was wireless,
Cigars were nicotineless,
And coffee caffeineless.

Soon oranges were seedless,
The putting green was weedless,
The college boy was hatless,
The proper diet fatless.

New motor roads are dustless,
The latest steel is rustless,
Our tennis courts are sodless,
Our new religion — godless.

i agree with Master Po. this one is so true. it took a while for me to realize that the reason people didnt like me wasnt because creativity is bad, but because they are JEALOUS of my creativity.
