Transcend

Don’t dwell on the line you forgot
just think of another to jot
the stars and the stories you plot
comprise the extent of your lot

resist that reflexive restraint
when prepping your palette to paint
don’t let your timidity taint
your flicker until it’s too faint—

creation is crucial you see
to prove to ourselves that we’re free
and that deep inside you and me
is the essence of all we can be.

Hey becca, yes I occasionally think of a previous poem when writing something new, plus it's a way to highlight some of my older stuff, thanks for reading :^)

Hi Dave, glad you liked it, I figured any serious writer would relate to that one :^D
