The creative never grow old inside
They are always coming up with new things
They are open in spirit

They might look old on the outside
but inside, there is a flame that will not die
Their work will somehow be passed on

that includes their work with others
helping others to realize their potential
and to feel good about themselves

that includes building a cool car motor
from scratch, with very few tools available
and making that car purr like a kitten

that includes the poet, artist, dancer
actor, director, novelist, singer-songwriter
and so on

and we’re talkin’ the creative scientist

and we’re talkin’ the creative chef

and we’re talkin’ the creative teacher

Their spirits will never die
Their work will somehow be passed on
So don’t laugh at them

Don’t laugh at them
when they get old
on the outside

They are priceless, they are a treasure
society makes fun of them at its peril
