The Price of Creativity

In being creative

A risk that you take

Is being criticized

By the ones who ain't

And should your ego

Be fragile or slim

To continue you have to

Grow a thicker skin

To sell your product

You have to conform

And not be too far

From the given norm

'Cause should you fly off the handle

Building picnic tables that are on rockers

The cost of creativity may be

Having to rent storage lockers.
