Formula

Instead of taking risks
You play it safe
Creatively held back
Let a formula take its place.

Predictable
You let your life work become
No longer experimenting
No longer growing
No longer creating
The work you come to love.

Stopping growth right in its tracks
There is still so much to learn
Why enjoy the playback?
Thinking in the box
As you color within the lines.
Don’t be afraid to create a new picture
See outside of the lines.

Creatively dormant. Mundane at best
Not expressing yourself too.
A formula for success has trapped you.
Inhibiting you as an artist
I no longer see you.

Consistency to replace creative expression is a talent too.
Not expressing your emotions
I guess there is a formula for that too.
