The Vandals of Creativity

They pack
And attack
That which they do not have.

With heavy sarcasm
And timid aspirations,
Gleaming new thoughts
Are smashed
By the vandals
Of creativity.

I read the above in an ad many years ago.  I don't even know now what was being advertised, but I cut out the page and put it on my bulletin board, and it has followed me around ever since.  It strikes me as one of the truisms of life, and something that artists of all kinds have to fight against every day.  Just a reminder to not let anyone keep us down, steal our strength, our creativity, our raison d'etre.
