Create something today.
Take a photo,
write a poem,
draw a lovesick rat.
Don’t worry about whether it’s any good,
any more than you worry about whether
you’re good at breathing.
You breathe because you’re alive.
You create for the same reason.
Creativity requires only that,
So part the curtain of your soul
and let the light out.
If you wobble,
tell yourself you are simply doing
what every creative person does,
which is partly making something new,
and partly just practicing
the art of being alive
by leaping faithfully
into the unknown.
