Contrived imagination derives
From men of limited ingenuity.
Dare not me of impunity,
And Dare not a man who transcends
The circles of time.
Essence of creativity derives
From the heart and hand
And stands beyond the ancient
Ideaology of broken genious,
As the seamstress stitches art
From the stream of consciousness,
Not from patterns obvious
To the naked eye of spectators
Who murder art through observation,
Errant attempts to scrutinize
Leaves the ultimate prize untouched
So Dare not the one who holds no crutch!

Interesting viewpoint on creativity, but the reading is a tad marred from the misspellings. I think it would be prudent to spell check this poem, and edit it, which can be done by clicking on the little icon to the far right. If you hold your mouse over it, it will give you a description of what it does.

Gets out her dictionary....hmmmm.
I actually kind of liked this one after I figured out what you were trying to say.
