~ Enemy of Creativity ~

How many hours have I wasted,

in a glass and plastic box?

My mind, doing time, in a prison

devoid of any locks.

How many hours spent sitting,

on a now numb rooted ass?

How many stories of fictional lives,

have I watched as time ticked past?

Countless murders, sitcoms and news,

with dot matrixes fogging my brain.

I am not the zombie I appeared to be,

yet sometimes, even I couldn’t refrain.

Brainwashed by images and words;

an umbilical cord, the remote.

But then my favorite show would come on,

so that would be all I wrote.

Nevermore! the poet in me cried,

and began to write in haste.

I shut the T.V. off for good,

no more precious time to waste!

For time is all we’re given, friends,

Spend it how you choose.

But while you watch, your life is passing,

each minute, one you forever lose.

About dragonkatet

Regarding the blog name, Dragon’s Dreams ~ The name comes from my love-affairs with both Dragons and Dreams (capital Ds). It’s another extension of who I am, a facet for expression; a place and way to reach other like-minded, creative individuals. I post poetry and images that fascinate or move me, because that’s my favorite way to view the world. I post about things important to me and the world in which we live, try to champion extra important political, societal and environmental issues, etc. Sometimes I wax philosophical, because it’s also a place where I always seem to learn about myself, too, by interacting with some of the brightest minds, souls and hearts out there. It’s all about ‘connection(s)’ and I don’t mean “net-working” with people for personal gain, but rather, the expansion of the 4 L’s: Light, Love, Laughter, Learning.
