My Often Unspecific Urge for a Creative Expression: A Poem

Val enjoys writing his own style of what resembles poetry, just hoping to catch someone's heart on the same page.


Not being a poet -- yet writing a poem

or a painter, tickling canvas with brush

I am letting my fancy to carelessly roam

just finding this outlet for my creative rush.

It's something similar to runner's high

while it matters not what the direction

as long as foot feels like if it could fly

momentum giving all the satisfaction.

So I could write some crazy rhymes

or splash the canvas with no outline

doing what I've done so many times

just self-expressing and feeling fine.

Is it presentable? well, I don't care

I'll fake creating for some fake judge

much of poetry has some crap to share

many a canvas filled with a colorful smudge.

So if others can sell it as some art

while I even have nothing for a sale

art and crap is often hard to tell apart

so it's equal chance to succeed and fail.

Like a drunken driver with foot on gas

humming a tune while enjoying the ride

where the road goes I don't give a rat's ass

for today's creative urge doesn't need a guide.
