Where Does It Come From?
Evolve, Devolve, Revolve Competition Entry
When rhymed lines in my mind appear,
Or melodies well pitched and clear,
I am always grateful, but it amazes me …
If ‘Nothing comes from nothing’ is often said,
These questions twirl in my curious head:
How and where does inspiration come from?
What kind of magic spell ignites chosen souls
And makes them burn with life-long passions
To express emotions and notions in art forms?
What special rule deems who a creator becomes
And receives unique talent gifts for the Arts?
When urgent world problems will finally be solved,
Then Science will have much more time to devote
To research how creativity in humans has evolved.
It will explain the compulsion of the gifted to give
Arts to the world or others’ thirst for the arts, to ‘receive’.
Meantime, creators will always exist in the world,
Because artistic urges will never be kept on hold!
And IF the whole world in the Arts would immerse
This trend might all conflicts and violence disperse …
