    Default The SJ's creativity corner

    Beverages are in the corner along with cup cakes

    I am dedicating this thread to the creativity we SJ's hold within

    This thread is ambiguous so allow your creativity juices to flow.

    Poems, stories, DIY, art, your hobby .. If its creative then give it power.

    I'll go first then .. I wrote this poem yesterday. I was in the shower and some really smart words were coming into my head but i couldn't remember them when i had the pen and paper in my hand so this ended up being the final product. I even got most of it to rhyme

    I think my subconscious was giving me a pep talk.

    My Friend, fear not.

    You cannot see
    What your life is meant to be
    Experiences have tainted your sight
    But fear not my friend
    It will soon come to an end
    And your life will soon come to light

    Release your fear
    And keep that strength
    Hold your head high
    And restrain from looking down
    For that continuous, lingering sigh
    Has finally come around

    You radiate your glow
    To all those you touch
    Now go forth my friend
    And remain as such

    The magnificent fortitude
    Of all you can be
    Don't allow this to be wasted
    On insignificant negitivity

    Be your own leader
    Put your best foot forward
    You have the strength
    Of many victorious warriors

    I trust in you, i too can believe
    You'll make your mark
    Just allow the idea to conceive

    You are a warrior my friend
    Now go, do and be
    Then you'll see
    When you drop that baggage
    You too will be free

    Great idea for a thread, Sas!

    I draw... [sometimes]
    Animals, anthropomorphics and people mostly, as I find them the most interesting.
    I also write... [sometimes]
    But I share that considerably less frequently as I think writing is a lot more personal than my art.

    Anyway I'm aware there's not much in my gallery at present, but there's more in the works if I can ever force myself to sit down and finish something worthwhile. Enjoy!

    Drums. That's about the extent of any creativity I have. I feel like I have a good eye for art, but I can't create much. I've never spent any amount of time with it though, because I get too frustrated.

    I've always played music - it runs in my family. I play some drums and piano. And back in the day, I liked to draw. I used to be good for my age, but not at all anymore. I still doodle when I feel so inclined.

    I like writing poetry sometimes, but I mostly think of it as a challenge or a writing exercise, and not as a form of expression.

    I also have been working on a story, off and on, for a few years. It's a bit generic as of now (and I'm trying to fix that, but haven't come up with a plot twist yet), but I'd like to think that it's compensated by the voices of the narrators. That's where I have the most fun, and I'd like to think that people can tell that when they read it.

    But most of my creativity is channeled through... knitting! I say that because, though I usually use patterns, I will occasionally make up my own.

    For example...



    an iPod cozy of my own design!

    Now... where's my cupcake?

    Also, I wrote this poem a while ago (inspired by The Matrix trilogy)...
    Nothing was right until he found you.
    You never felt like you belonged.
    You were the black sheep,
    the white rabbit with reddened eyes
    made sore from too many hours
    searching for a gate out of reality,
    or an entrance to reality,
    that you could never pass through.
    The world was green,
    a scrolling artificiality,
    flashing lights and a throbbing pulse,
    empty suits, empty metaphors,
    Falsity.

    Then, there he was.
    a voice of earth and stone,
    smooth, august,
    otherworldly,
    Real.
    His eyes were mirrors into dreams,
    and he offered you the cure.
    Two gateways,
    blue and red,
    and there was no choice.
    Through the red gate, you transcended;
    a fearful humming,
    a shimmering cold,
    and the silver dragon, shining and alive,
    Swallowed you.

    And you awoke.
    You awoke!
    Freed from the soft, maternal cage,
    the codes and needles and plugs,
    And suddenly free to fulfill
    The One purpose.
    You will return the world
    to the organic, wool-clad,
    red-blooded, blue tinted and
    passion-driven
    Humanity
    of times long forgotten.

    But first, you must come to
    Accept who you are,
    and realize what is
    and what isn’t.
    The Door
    has been shown to you.
    Now you must tear it
    from its hinges
    and lead the world
    Out.
