I Love To Try To Be Creative - Poem by Ahmad Shiddiqi

I love to try to be creative
In thought about all I do
To create is to take something
That is nothing on its own
And change it to an object
Or idea or sound or word
Which is pleasing, and arresting

I have adapted from other ideas
And philosophies
A way to look at life
And to use time in a positive
And constructive way
A person who creates environment
Can be enormously creative person
If you watch children play
In a most creative way
They use their imagination
The unique ability of humans
Is their capacity and power to create
So I look at life creatively

I am reawakened
To many conveniences
And marvels of our technology
Often hiding the inner vacuum of loneliness
I have great fun
In wandering in my mind
In quiet moments
And am often amazed
To find solutions to problems
I thought were unsolvable
Accept problems and want to solve
That is your challenge
Problems are the spice of the life

    The last stanza did it for me. 'Problems are the spice of life'. Getting through life is difficult as there are always problems and this is what life is! To solve these problems, and as you say Ahmad in a creative way, is the spice of life. I liked how you mentioned having time to oneself and I think this is a special time to even create poetry! So many words of wisdom here Ahmad. 10

    This wonderful piece is true, especially these lines. 'A person who creates environment/ Can be enormously creative person/ If you watch children play/ In a most creative way/ They use their imagination/ The unique ability of humans/ Is their capacity and power to create/ So I look at life creatively...'.
