A Creative’s Highest And Greatest Good: Revolutionary Email Sonnet

June 20, 2012

What is, as a creative,
my highest and greatest good?
Is it to feed the impoverished natives?
Or make their plight understood?

Or is it to elevate
the souls of men
with turns of phrases I create
which no one else will or can?

To lift, to raise ever higher
their feelings, joy and rapture?
To enlighten, move to action, and inspire
by seeing and saying what most can’t capture?

Isn’t this the creative’s highest call?
To observe and reveal grand visions to all?

Altruistic Hand Extension: Revolutionary IMprov Poem

March 10, 2011

My helping hand has always been extended
(unlike others, who frequently intended
to reach out to you for their own gain).
My purposes have always been the same:

To support and uplift you
where I could;
To encourage you onward
to your greatest good.
