Creative Imagination, Curse or a Blessing?
One of the distinctive features of humans is their creativity, by the use of their imagination they are able to create great literature or to compose moving compositions that inspire and uplift our spirits
Not forgetting those magnificent works of art, timeless masterpieces that live on our lives long after the artist who produced them past away
With such a wonderful gift of creativity, it is sad that there have been those who chose to create weapons of destruction and used their imagination stir emotions of envy and hate
Creating ugliness instead of beauty - wonder and joy
Even the great artist and composers must have struggled with their creative nature, for some became tormented by the very passion that drove them onto greatness
While others succumbed to their emotions and allowed their imagination to conjure up demanding personal demons that soon ruled over their lives
Twisting what should have been a joyful experience of love, into a hopeless empty bitter tasting pill to swallow, with such power over then they abruptly ended their life
For they could not bear such torment, and many lived in poverty only to become famous after their death – sadly never knowing the fame and fortune that might have been theirs
Vincent Van Gogh was such an artist, although he didn’t intend to become an artist, he originally went into the life of a clergy.
Several years later he became a creative artist, but sadly remained poor, only reaching the lofty status of famous artist after his death
