Some of Us

Some of us always colored
outside the lines and were

punished for it in a system
that didn’t get it. The basics

were necessary but why
wasn’t there room for creat-

ivity beyond the basics?
Thank the Lord, we are old

enough and have survived
the system to build on the

basics (Thank you, teachers.)
and plumb the depths of

our creative lives in visual
art, musical art, literary art

and express the plethora
of creativity lurking inside

each of us and just crying to
get out and find expression.
