I Once Wrote A Poem About Nothing…

I once wrote a sonnet about nothing at all,
I narrated a story that no one could recall.
I even penned a novel without a plot.
And yes, I did produce a movie about squat.

Amazingly, I created a poem that lacked a verse,
I directed that play for which we forgot to rehearse.
I coined a phrase that had no meaning,
I designed an animation without a screening.

But why construct an abundance of content without consumption?
Like neglecting a finale after a sweeping introduction?
Our failures teach us to build on our shortfalls,
And recreate thoughts and overhaul protocols.

So go create your “thing,” no matter the missteps or unconnected dots,
That’s the whole point of #StevieDeepThoughts!

I have too many thoughts in any given day, many of which would make for amazingly horrible novels and equally terrible products, but that’s what makes creativity both challenging and rewarding.  As we approach the half-way point of 2016, I look back and would probably say that I am behind schedule on the mental checklist stored in the back of my head, but that’s ok.  I continue to write down new thoughts and ideas every day to help get me to where I want to be… eventually.

P.S. I’ll try to refrain from more poetry, at least for another month or two.
