What is Creativity?

Updated on October 16, 2013

What is Creativity?

Is it coming up with something completely new?

Creating something from nothing as if on cue


Is it combining made concepts in order to create?

The ability to do so is still something great


Is it the ability and flexibility to adapt to change?

Embracing the new despite it being strange


Does it come from ability or a great deal of work?

In perspiration or inspiration does it lurk?


The answer it seems incorporates them all

It’s finding the new, escaping the banal


All human beings are capable of imagination

But we are taught to deny its cultivation


As a child we create often with little limitation

As practicality is expected it comes in moderation


Judgment and logic become commonly used

Our creative impulses now often refused


To escape the trap, we change how we think

Question the norm, and find a new link


Then action and thoughts find new direction

A solution that could just be perfection
