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.
