Creating Destiny

Palanka Roumer

To create a thing
Is to express
Yourself.
And in a manner,
Seek temporal immortality.
Words, sounds, and colors.
Vivid representations
Of the human condition.
A multi-layered message,
An outstretched hand.
“We are here,
Together.
We came separately,
We will leave separately.
But we are here,
Together.
And this is what I see.”
Creation,
The power of the gods,
Is not a power, but privilege.
It is an honor to be here
In this place,
This crossroads.
Living
Growing
Learning
Creating.
So create,
Sing
Paint
Dance
Be.
Write a story
Play a song
Plant a garden
Start a family.
Yes.
A family.
Offspring.
Children.
Create the future.
Come together with your companion,
The balance of you.
Come together and create.
Collaborate on
The most vital expression of
Your existence.
Greater than any painting
Song
Structure.
For from this
Do those things stem.
Create the future.
