Pulling ideas out of thin air.
There, caught another so beware.
I’m feeling empty inside today.
Trying to keep the blues at bay.
I’ve been battling unemployment
I’ve had little time for enjoyment.
I’ve been questioning my self worth.
What sets me apart from others on earth?
What makes me better than the next?
That question will surely perplex.
My brain keeps going in loops.
Worst case scenarios continue to group.
Many say this is a time to reinvent.
All the time that you have spent
On seeking your glory.
What did you find with your story?
Always reaching to feel the eternal hole.
A one man show didn’t make me new
Or even a nice office with a window view.
And how do I know I am great?
What gifts have I given the world to take?
What awards have I received with my time?
What certificates have I earned on my dime?
How many acronyms can I regurgitate?
What can I do for you without mistakes?
Does this poem qualify me as creative?
Does this work make me an idea native?
One that has explored the desert of emptiness.
One that has come back with diamonds and bliss.
Because from this emptiness everything exists.
Tapping into its energy is something I can’t resist.
So regardless of me finding my big break.
I am tapped into something infinite and awake.
I need not to be anointed by the gate keepers.
I need only continue to make this creative leap.
No matter what the situation is right now.
Everything that could happen is happening in the Tao.
The answer to my question is that I’m not exceptional.
You and I are one and the same even if it seems irrational.
So go ahead and review my resume and skill set.
If you look hard you will see I am empty, just like you I bet.
Through that we are all interconnected
And I see the potential from our atoms that have collected.
